Actually the PCI Radeon supports Quartz Extreme....Originally posted by FattyMembrane
you can get a radeon 7000 pci for $120 if you want to play better games, but the pci card will not support quartz extreme in osx.
Been there, done that. I personally don't recommend it. I have a Yikes G4 (PCI graphics) with a Radeon 7000. When I enabled Quartz Extreme it LOWERED my graphics performance over 30%! Some G3 users have reported better performance, but not everyone. You won't really know until you try it.Originally posted by hitman

But I'll leave it up to you to find the hack online...
i would say that this machine would beat a pentium II, 300 mhzOriginally posted by BuZZ22k
My compnay is giving these things away. I got a centris for free and might be able to pick up this G3 for $50. Is it worth getting? Can I ugrade it if need be? Compared to a PC how fast would this be?
Apple said that too in their old adverts at the time with the toasted intel guys in them :i would say that this machine would beat a pentium II, 300 mhz
