Daniel there isn't to many Mac people around here. Be wiser to post this kind of stuff on a Mac forum...But ontopic it be wise to boost the ram in the Mini to 1GB. OS X is a ram whore and loves every bit of ram it can get its hands on. Then the G4 is the same as a P4 2.2ghz so you got good enough speed for what you do with the processor.
Its good for a low end pc. good for older games. and like agent said, OS X is a RAM whore. diffinally up it to a gig of ram. though the mac mini only has one ram slot
sucks at all!!! Sempron 2800+ 1 Gig RAM ATI Radeon 9600 spec. 256 RAM overclocked too 3.2 GHZ and about 50 of the best games on the World.

The main flaw with Macs is that they allocate only a certain amount of memory to each process. If a process runs out of space, it often crashes. I don't know if this is rectified in later versions of MacOS, but the older ones were afflicted by it. It would be benificial to boost that memory to 1GB if you intend on playing the odd game or doing image stuff.
I hate all macs there was/is one good game for it EV/EV Nova.
Nothin special, tho i heard that Mac processors are really efficient or something like that so a 1.3Ghz one would be as gd as a 3Ghz Intel or something like that ?
Am i right or just chatting bull s**t!
adammasucks at all!!! Sempron 2800+ 1 Gig RAM ATI Radeon 9600 spec. 256 RAM overclocked too 3.2 GHZ and about 50 of the best games on the World.
No offense, but you can't really talk with that setup (I'll admit it does top his fairly easily). You have a fairly old rig that you've just overclocked the hell out of. And I know I can't really brag since I'm running on GMA950 right now, (630 in 3dmark05, baby!!), but hopefully I've got an X1600XT on the way. Not as good as my old 6800GT (sold it to put away some money), but it's excellent performance for the price. 12 pixel pipes at 600MHz (...or 500?) for $130. Anyway, back on topic. You're system seems pretty decent. But what exactly are you planning to do with it? There aren't many games that will run on a mac. Except one of my favorites, Star Trek: Elite Force 2. You could run that with you're setup.

What am I playing to do with it ? I use it mainly for posting on GF and other forums, and using some of the cool software like iDVD which lets you make movies, graphics a career in computer graphics would be nice because Macs are perfect for graphics projects, I'll have to get a copy of photoshop for this, I would also like to work in a office where they use Macs designing stuff as like I said before Macs are great for graphics projects, but before I get to do anything like that I'll need to completly know how to use it Mac forums or a college course would be ideal for this.
Daneil if your gonna do Photoshop and iMovie upgrade the ram to 1GB. OS X is ram whore and will eat a crap load of ram. You may have 512mb but 1GB will help a lot. OS X its self really needs 2GB of ram.
