    I'm using a Mac OX 10.4.11 Safari 4 and video games and any video on youtube are sluggish and slow.
    Anyway to improve my Graphic card?

    HERE IS MORE INFO ON MY MAC HARDWARE:
    Machine Name: eMac
    Machine Model: PowerMac4,4
    CPU Type: PowerPC G4 (2.1)
    Number Of CPUs: 1
    CPU Speed: 700 MHz
    L2 Cache (per CPU): 256 KB
    Memory: 512 MB
    Bus Speed: 100 MHz

    I'm new to the Mac scene about a year with this eMac.
    I hope I can just download an upgrade to my graphic card.
    Other games that I play on facebook also runs a little slow.
    I even used Firefox and still the Videos are running slow.
    Please Help Me Out.

    That's Flash (Adobe's masterpiece maybe), it is highly CPU intensive on Mac OS X. You have 700MHz and that just doesn't cut it for YouTube. Try a software called Click2Flash, which enables you to view YouTube videos in H264 via the QuickTime Player, which will reduce the CPU use and may give you a fluent video viewing experience, but Flash games will still be not really playable.

    Hmmm. My EeePC is underclocked to 630MHz and is capable of watching Youtube videos smoothly.

    Try closing the programs you don't use. Maybe increase the RAM if you've got the $.

    Is your eeePC running Mac OS X or Windows?

    My 1.07GHz G4 iBook can't handle YouTube that good either.

    No I'm not using windows. Only safari on Mac OS X 10.4.11
    Even with Firefox it's still running slow.

    Can I upgrade the Graphic Card [nVIDIA]

    My question regarding the eeePC was aimed at Paul B.

    Upgrading the graphics card will not help, Flash is using the CPU only.

    Have you tried Click2Flash yet?
