    Hey everyone I recently acquired a few parts from a broken B&W Powermac G3 and want to know if it would improve the performance of my AGP Graphics G4.

    This was inside the G3 and I was curious if I could install it in the G4 and if I could if it would be worth the effort.

    There was also a 32MB PCI ATI Raedon graphics card inside of the G3, will it work if I put it in one of the free PCI slots?

    Well just looking briefly at the description, I think this answers your question.

    The Sonnet card (CPU upgrade) will only work on the machines listed, and your machine is not on that list, so No Go.

    Yes, but not as the only video card.
