    i have an older powermac g4 with 450mhz dual processor and runs on OSX 10.4.4
    the memory is PC100 SDRAM. and i only have 256mb and want/need more.
    is there other memory compatible with the PC100 say like PC133?
    or do i need to order only PC100 memory for it?

    PC133 is backwards compatible to 100, so that will be fine.

    ok so the PC133 will work fine with it. is there a way to change it so i can use PC300 RAM instead? would that be better?

    I don't think that RAM is backwards compatible to PC100.

    The 100MHz limit is in the hardware, so adding faster RAM won't do anything.
