    1-is this the ram problem?
    2-hdd not spinning fast enough?
    3-gfx card onboard not good enough?

    That's not a lot of RAM at all. I'd see if you can max out the memory, as I think it uses up to 1GB, right?

    Also, Most modern games run choppy on old G4 systems. I saw Apple's requirements, but I think those are the bare minimum.

    And to answer your question- 128 is onboard/soldered and 128 is in slot. Max of 1.125.

    You have a 32mb Radeon 9700 video card, too.

    It's 2700 compatible, but the system runs at 2100.
