    Hi guys...

    So yeah. I have this old iMac G3 that has been sitting in my closet for years, it hasn't been used for over 5 years. So I turn it on yesterday after discovering all the old Mac games on Macintoshgarden, and it works! :D

    The specs go as follows:

    G3 333 mhz, 64 MB RAM, 6 GB HD, OS 9.2.2

    If i buy two 128 MB sticks at OWC, will I be able to run any Mac game from 2001 and older just fine? The early early Mac OS X games built for 10.0-10.1 that are 3D but also compatible with OS 9 are the ones that scare me the most.

    I'm not sure if you meet the minimum specs for Fallout 1 and 2, but if you do, those should definitely be on your list! They absolutely fly on my iMac 600mhz with 1gb of RAM... if you maxed out your RAM, you should be okay.

    Why not go ahead and max the RAM out at 512MB?

    256 MBs of RAM costs 18 dollars, 512 costs 60.

    If I could find some used RAM cheap maybe from here, I would buy it. :D

    THIS would get you 512Mb for $24

    No, I don't think that would work. IIRC the Rev. D iMac needs low-density SO-DIMMs which are expensive. I remember paying a pretty penny to max out my Rev. D last summer.
