    Specs:
    Dual 800mhz G4
    1gb RAM
    80gig HD
    Combo drive
    Zip drive
    An nVidia Geforce 4mx card 64mb with ADC/vga. (ADC->DVI)
    The case looks like its in great shape from pictures.

    1) What is the max HD size for this model? I plan to swap the main for 250gb or add a second 80gb.
    2) Are they good at accepting generic DVD-R drives?
    3) Zip drive: just keep it? or is it worth any $$
    4) What are my GPU upgrade options? ADC->DVI Does it give a produce a good picture?
    5) Should I get a USB 2.0 PCI card? I have quite a few devices.
    6) Must have wireless internet. Was thinking of buying one of these. Anyone have any experience adding wireless to G4s?

    Thanks for advice :)
