Well please dont hate me, i think the new machines ( G-5 ) are awesome, but afterthinking about it i could not part with my shorter yet stylish looking quicksilver so i opted for a 1.467 G4 mercury extreme upgrade from owc. I have a gig of memory and didnt want to start over, i also have a geforce3 and my 733 was not able to feed it if you will. Well now i will be able to feed that card. Maybe another 512 of memory for christmas and i'll have it maxed out. The styling or lack of it in the g5 and cost, and the investment in my machine that i didnt want to walk away from. I should say this, through os9, and all those newer os10's my quicksilver has never let me down, and even after 2 strikes of lightning knocking out my eithernet ( which i now use a card in the pci slot thank you) this mac just keeps going. So if i can get another year or more out of my trusty old companion ill be happy. Yes i am a mac gamer please don't hate me. Apple does make the best computers.
