Don't know where to begin. New to macs, very new. Bought a G4 on ebay for $40. Listed as a G4 AGP, etc. Did a little research using the info in the listing and settled on it being a sawtooth. Specs 400, rage 128 pro, DVD, 128MB, 40gig, SCSI card, 10.3, only software pre-loaded was adobe design suite CS.
Now all is well and given that i only paid forty bucks for it. runs very well, i've upgraded the memory to 832MB and the hd up to 120.
Well, I bought a 550 cpu on ebay (waiting for it to arrive). recently doing a bit more research and found that my order #M7891LL/A isn't a sawtooth, but a gigabit.
I know gigabits ran duals. so my questions are this (please keep in mind i know little about macs)
1. is this a good model?
2. can i upgrade to duals or
3. should i keep the 550?
I tend to run photoshop, of course surf, and office. since i'm learning the ins and outs of this os.
I know i may sound stupid, but i've used pcs all my life, building etc. thought it'd be nice to use a mac for once. another forum has been really helpful, but after reading this forum i felt that it was going to lead to modding questions as well.
and i've bugged them enough.
thanks in advance.
