    Ok I decided I will wait until I can afford a PC o buy one... In the meantime i'm gonna upgrade my Mac as much as I can. My question is:

    What good upgrades can I get for gaming on my G4 733 Quicksilver|640 MB ram|Nvidia GeForce 2 MX 32 MB| comp?

    I was thinking a GeForce 4 Ti 4400, but what else is recommended?

    I think I might sell my PS2 and games to upgrade my comp through the roof. (Maybe even max out the ram... 1..5 gb..... yum)

    BTW, Does anyone wanna buy my PS2????

    Thanky!

    Video card would probably give you the best results. 640mb ram is already tons.

    getting that video card would make a big difference. cow is right, 640MB of RAM is plenty. just the video card. :nod:

    Yes, get either the GeForce4 Ti 4600 or the Radeon 8500. I recommend the GeForce4 myself.

    Just NEVER buy the GF4 MX!! (on eBay or wherever.) It's teh uber lame.
