Hi all,

I have a Power Mac G4, AGP Graphics, 350 Mhz. Running OS-X. Still using the original hard drive. Needles to say I need more room. I've heard conflicting issues on what to buy, as a highly recommended drive is no longer available. Also, I'm planning on just adding an additional drive instead of replacing the original. What would you people recommend buying and installing? Thanks!
QUOTE Thanks

Be aware that this computer has a 128gig hard drive size limit. I think that with the proper PCI card...you may be able to use larger drives.

Otherwise...just get any brand IDE compatible 3.5" hard drive. You'll find that new IDE 3.5" hard drives are very expensive (much more expensive...per gigabyte...as compared to an SATA drive).
