Hello all it's my first time posting here and i must say i love the site. I've been Reading around and can't seem to find my answer. I recently purchased a PowerMac G3 Blue & White from eBay for $31.00 (i stole it from ebay lol) here are the specs.
# 400MHz PowerPC G3 CPU
# 416MB RAM
# 40GB HDD (IBM Deskstar)
# DVD/CD-RW GCC-44808 drive
# IOMEGA ZIP 100MB drive
# ATI Radeon 7000 (RV100) 64MB VRAM with D-SUB, DVI and S-VIDEO ports
# Realtek 802.11B Wireless card
# 1 x FireWire port
# 2 x USB ports
# 1 x Ethernet port
# OS X 10.4.9
The problem im having is the Processor, i want to do and upgrade to a 1.0Ghz PowerLogix card, i know the card will work in my system but i've notced OS X doesnt support CPU upgrades will this pose a problem? Im new to Mac i am a PC Tech not a Mac genius any help is appreciated. Thanks!
Can you post a url to the Powerlogix upgrade you are think of buying? It should work just fine in Tiger 10.4.9. Apple does not support upgrades, but the Manufacture of the card does.
I like the fact your B&W has that better ATI PCI Graphics card in it. The Stock card is weak.
yea i saw the stock Rage 128 and i laughed then i saw this system and saw all the upgrades and i was oh its mine lol... heres the link
I just wasnt sure what they meant by not supported so i was iffy, thanks for the help i have many more Mac questions :)
i remember the first pc i ever bought was an old hp with the Rage it was soo good back in the day lol.
idk i cant break it open tonight i gotta rest up but ill check and let you know. I think it does have the dual hdd bracket though but ill check the chip later. thanks for all your help i now dont mind putting the money into this $31.00 system :)
