Power Mac Video Card Upgrade
Ever since I managed to get a few 90s Macs I’ve had fun exploring using them for gaming and various projects. Some of my favorites are the G4 models from the end of the 90s and early 2000s most likely because they are so much like a PC of the era. Easy both to use and to upgrade. The latter thing is something you can’t exactly say of modern Macs unfortunately.
So looking at some upgrade options I settled on putting in a Radeon 9000 Pro into my G4 AGP model which is basically a slot in with little extra work. it provides a substantial boost in gaming performance while now the CPU is proving to be the bottle neck instead. Check out the video for the actual results but now this machine is a legitimate gaming rig fit for the era!
