uhhh Eric... the beige G3 takes the exact same memory as other older 
pci-based macs, the 168 pin dimms... NOT the PC100 ram...

that's 3 slots ... 128 max in each (apple recommends only 64 in 
each), max of 384megs

the blue and white G3's take the newer ram, which is a big 
advantage... the ram on the beige g3's is what really makes them crap 

I'm thinking of getting an ATI Radeon 7000 64MB video card for the 
tower... so the video will be far better than the beige... the pc 
cards can supposedly be flashed and they cost a lot less than the 
'real' mac cards.
