Hello all. i just picked up a G4 today, and was curious about a couple things. first off here are the specs

* Machine Model: Power Mac G4 (AGP graphics)
* CPU Type: PowerPC G4 (2.8)
* Number of CPU: 1
* CPU speed: 400Mhz
* L2 Cache: 1MB
* Memory: 256MB
* Bus Speed 100Mhz
* Memory: 256MB (1 used, 3 more empty slots available)
* ATI Rage 128 Pro video card
* 2 Hard drives: Western Digital 80GB, and Western Digital 10GB
* DVD-Rom
* Logitech Optical Wheel mouse
* Original Apple USB keyboard
* Firewire & USB
* Ethernet (for you broadband internet connection or network)
* v.90 Modem

I am semi new to macs, i been using a g4 ibook for quiet some time now, but with this machine i would like to upgrade it. so i was wondering, can this machince be upgraded to dual cpus? or how can u tell how high u can go with the mhz of the cpu? also, i have a ton of ram laying around the house, how can i find out the what kind to put in it, like i know it is sdram, but is it 100 or 133 and whats the highest amount it will read per stick of memory? i really want to upgrade this into a pretty decent system since i can't afford to throw down the cash for a G5 *drools*

Your help will be greatly apreaciated, and thank you in advance.

This is what the AGP supports:

RAM: 64/128/256 MB standard on 400/450/500 MHz models, expandable to 1.5 GB using PC100 SDRAM (3.3V, unbuffered, 64-bit, 168-pin, 100 MHz) in 4 DIMM slots

found on www.lowendmac.com

You can put 133 SDRAM in it, they will run at 100MHz.
