Hello everyone. Let me introduce myself, I'm ezgoin and I'm new here. I recently bought a used G4 PowerMac with AGP graphics from Ebay and I plan to upgrade it.
I want to start with the 450 MHz processor. In order to do so, do I need to upgrade the Logic board too ? This is my first Mac and I don't know if the logic boards are limited in the size of processor they support like some P.C's are. I don't know the serial number on the logic board nor if it's necessary to knowing processor limitations but there is a number on the corner near the reset button that is KD02305A3HQTD however, all searches don't turn up any information.
I want to install a 1.4 or 1.8 Ghz processor but before I purchase it, I want to make sure that's all I'd need to complete the upgrade.( Besides RAM which I intend to upgrade to 2GB 4x526Mb )
Below is the information listed in the " About this Mac" section of the system profiler.
Machine Name: Power Mac G4 (AGP graphics)
Machine Model: PowerMac3,1
CPU Type: PowerPC G4 (2.9)
Number Of CPUs: 1
CPU Speed: 450 MHz

Any information that anyone would be able to provide me would be greatly appreciated.
