    I was reading some articles on the internet about overclocking the G4 sawtooth. The guy said that overclocking 100mhz is going to make the system unstable, so the most i could overclock is to 550mhz, thats only 50mhz. Is that going to make much of a diff?
    Thanks

    I doubt that you will see much improvement. But, 50 free MHz are 50 free MHz- if you can do it safely then go for it. Faster/better performance for $0.00 = a good deal. :)

    Of course, that's assuming you know what you're doing and you don't end up with 0MHz, because that's suck. :(

    umm im really not all that sure. I think he is just afraid of something being better then microsoft :D and he says that "they arent open architecture" :confused: He doesn't know much about mac. and doesn't want to learn but other then that...its just any other reason why pc lovers hate mac.
