Ok, the guy has a PowerMac G4 with big HDD, good RAM, ATI card, but the proc is only 450MHz compared to faster one's I've seen.
I'm offering to trade back that iMac graphite, fully upgraded and pre-loaded with whatever software I can find for a big discount off the G4.
However, I'm still not sure how well it'll hold up to FCP3 or any other type of stuff. I KNOW it'll do internet and almost everything else well, as well as probably being able to hold Tiger (good news for me)...but is it enough?
I'm prolly even gonna tell him to remove an HDD and some RAM if he wants to lower the price: I have one or two still good sized HDDs compatible with IDE, and at least 512MB of RAM confirmed to work in a Mac.
Currently comes with OS9 and OS X 10.2.8, but I'd upgrade it asap.
So...good trade, bad trade, do it, it won't work...what?
Its a PCI Graphics one...I have another PCI card or two here (no idea of Mac compatibility) but hey, who knows...
