My lil sis has a G3 which she is using for multimedia, dv editing, animation etc. At the moment she is complaining that her mac is almost grinding to a halt under the extensive rendering etc.
Currently she has 384 mbs of ram and her graphics card is only a geforce4 mx.
Would i be right in saying that the first thing to be upgraded is memory and graphics card!? I have spoken to a lot of mac users who have at least a GB of ram.

I know it seems a silly question but im a pc user and assume mac and pc are both the same 'under the bonnet' I have suggested that she upgrade her graphics card, but what do think is the best choice for her?
I have been looking and in her price range have so far seen GeForce FX5600XT 256MB DDR AGP DVI VO and CONNECT 3D RADEON 9600 256MB DDR DVI+TV.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
