    I want to upgrade my 266 PM DT's 2mb vid ram. It says on everymac.com that its max is 6mb, which is fine, but at first I thought that meant I had to buy a 6mb pci vid card...then I did some looking around and it looks like there is actually a ram slot to load a 144 pin stick of ram or something...can anyone tell me for sure?

    **edit**
    Found this, would it be ok?

    Duff-Man says...yes, that is the vram you would use....but if I were you I would look around a bit, maybe on eBay. For not much more you can probably get a PCI card like a Radion or one of the other ATI Rage32 based cards that are *much* better than the built in ATI Rage on the G3...oh yeah!

    I have a ATI Rage 128 PCI card that I would be willing to sell. PM me if you are interested
