I've been searching around ebay and such for some powermac dual g4's, and most have come up for the sub-1000 dollar area, which is right in my alley..At the moment, I can't push past 1000 dollars and get a low-end g5 (money is tight)...Just wondering, all you dual g4 owners, how smooth is final cut pro on those machines? I've been looking at getting a dual 867, dual 1 ghz, whats the difference in speed? I know the g5 will beat the g4 on any day, but as I said before, the money is tight...I'm not into the all-in-one systems, so a imac g5 is not of my interest..I will try to load up the computer with ram if i get one, but I wouldn't have enough money to load up the g5 with ram, because I won't have any money in the first place..so the g4's would have over a gig of ram...Any help would be great and I hope you aren't confused by my questions... Thanks P.S. My powermac g3 is way too slow for anything!!
