    Hi,

    I currently have 768MB RAM in my Single 1 GHz G4 MDD. I often run a lot of apps at once (Safari, iTunes, iPhoto, Word, Entourage, Photoshop, Dreamweaver, Fireworks, Flash,...) and although my Mac is never getting slow and Activity Monitor mostly shows me that there is some RAM left , I was wondering if putting in an additional 512 MB would make a difference.
    What do you think?

    since your not running a dual proc machine, ram makes a significant diff. although you will only notice this if u are doing serious work on those multiple apps. but hey if u can afford it and want a litte boost go for it

    More RAM (especially adding 512MB) will show a significant increase in performance EVERY time. Crucial has cheap RAM and free shipping - go for it.
