Hi, I want to know, when it comes to software and is says that it requires a 500mzh or duel g4, can a 900mzh g3 handle that? For example there soundtrack software, they say it requires a g4.

well if it says it requires a G4 then you need to have a G4 a G3 will not run it.

Unless the program has G4 optimized code, a 900MHz G3 will absolutely destroy a 500MHz G4 in the same aplication. As far as soundtrack goes, it checks for the system specs at install time, and won't install on your G3. That is because the application probably uses procedure calls that only work on a G4.
