    Hello,

    I'm just now learning my way around computers and understand what Bus Speed means, but have a few questions:
    1. Is the only way to increase the Bus Speed to upgrade the chip set / motherboard?
    2. And, if so, is that even possible on a PB G4?
    3. And, if so, is it worth it?
    4. And, if so, what should I expect to pay in parts and time for such an upgrade (assuming I bought the parts and installed them myself)?

    Thanks,

    Justin

    You can't do that short of buying an entire new logic board. If you're going to do that you might as well get another computer.

    That's exactly what I was thinking.
    Just wanted to do a head check with somebody else.
    Thanks for the info.
