That is a Digital Audio. The first Digital Audio had a 466Mhz G4. It takes PC133 SDRAM. It's PC ram but not what recent PC's use. It will accept 3 512Meg PC133 modules for 1.5GB RAM. The DA was the only G4 tower with a 466 G4. The older ones used 400 and 500. Another way to tell is the Digital Audio models have the Audio ports at the very top of the back panel above the rest of the USB and Firewire ports like the faster and newer Quicksilver models.

It will run Tiger well but it needs RAM. It would be good to max it out with the 3 PC133 modules. Panther is not supported, Safari is really bad with many sites with 10.3.9 even. That is why I suggest Tiger.

Depending on what you want to do with the machine and how much you want to spend, you can upgrade the CPU, Video card, RAM. The CPU and Video upgrades are not cheap though! Just a warning.

As it sits if you upgrade the RAM to at least 1GB or more, it will do all the basic things pretty well. I have one and used it stock before upgrading it. It's now a 1.8Ghz G4 with ATI Radeon 9800 Pro and runs quite well with even leopard. Cost me a bit but I did it for the fun of upgrading it.

This should be your machine.
