At the moment, a ATI Radeon 9200 PCI Mac Edition.
Yup, get a 1GHz G3 750GX upgrade and a radeon 9200 PCI and you will have a zippy little machine. Dont get the 1GHz G4 unless you really need a G4, as it declocks your Bus to 66Mhz.
There are many apps optimized for the G4, you might consider the G4 over the G3.
You might save $100+ now, but I think it's money well spent to enjoy the apps that simply won't run on a G3, no matter how fast... Look to the future. My G3 550 runs most apps fine, but all of the multimedia apps suffer, some won't run at all.
It does? Do all the G4 upgrades do this? Did I waste my time and money getting a B&W motherboard to move the Daystar 450 G4 out of my beige?
Only the newer Sonnet 600MHz+ G4s downclock the bus to 66MHz.
