    I just ordered a powermac g3 for use as a webserver. It is a 350mhz with 256mb of ram. It has panther on it. Quick question: What kind of video card does it have, VGA,DVI,or something other?

    I don't think the ADC connectors came until the 2nd gen of G4's.

    So probably a PCI version of the ATi Rage 128 (16 MB VRAM) with single VGA.

    You can get DVI on it...
    Either the newer (but definitely not worth the $$$ for an old G3) ATi Radeon 9200 Mac, or
    .. or the nostalgic 3Dfx Voodoo 5500 card.. haha. But that's an old (but superb!!) card for Mac OS 9 only.

    One word of advice: try getting more RAM into that Mac of you're planning to use it as a Server.
    512 MB is the least amount you should give it.
