    I just Bought an iMac G3 for $6 USD. the only problem it has is a dieing hard drive so I though I might as well try and fix it up.

    It's an old Bondi blue.

    So what I want to do with it is put a 500 mhz logic bored and put in the max amount of ram it can take.

    I need some advice on how to do this (if It's possible) and what it's limits would be.

    Thanks in advance.

    sorry for the late reply

    you cant take a 500mhz board from a later slot loading imac g3 and fit in the bondi blue tray loader , but you have some other third party options G3 upgrades and even G4 upgrades :)

    good luck and have fun upgrading

    assuming you have a 233mhz rev a imac you could get the cpu from a rev c 333mhz, it's not much of a speed bump but it is faster, also adding a little more ram con go a long way
