    Upgrading PowerMac G3
    Hey I have one of those Yosemite Blue and White Power Macs and I just bought Adobe Photoshop 8.0 CS. Anyways, it can't run it because its doesn't have OSX. and my processor can't run OSX. Is their a place where i can get a G4 processor preferrably 1 to 1.4 GHz. Also, can these take a new hard drive and memory?
    Thanks,
    Jack

    First, are you sure your machine can't run OS X? Apple's site lists the Blue and White as a compatible system.

    Here are a few links to processor upgrades:

    And yes, you absolutely can (and should) upgrade the memory on your system. You can also upgrade the HDD if you need more space.

    The system requirements seem to suggest you may be able to run OS X
