I think he mentioned that it had a Radeon 9XXX video card. An ATI Rage128 would be pretty painful (no 3D), but I understand the 2D driver works pretty good.
When compared to an Efika, a 400Mhz Powermac with 512MB of memory would definitely be superior.
And there's always the possibility of adding a CPU accelerator card.


I'm going to buy Digital Audio model - 533 MHz on faster bus than older 400 Mhz models.
It has Geforce video card. I understand It won't work at all?
I want to change it to Radeon 7000 as it's cheap and easier to find than 9xxx models.
On MOS website Radeon 7000VE is listed as compatible. What is 'VE'? Will standard 7000 (non-VE) work?
(I mean Mac edition, I don't want to flash PC cards).
I'm not actually big fan of 3D games and I used to have R7000 on i386 linux laptop and I was pleased with its performance.

Yep, much better performance than the 7000. Right now probably the two best options.

Nice system, I hope you got a good price.
Since trying MorphOS is free, you've got nothing to lose.
What video card is installed in the MDD you bought?

I have a 500 MHz "GigaBit Ethernet" PowerMac with R9000. It is magnitude faster than Efika + I have 1152 MB RAM in it instead of 128, which does make a difference :-). Youtube movies play smoothly in overlay mode. I've not tried some higher resolution movies however.

Does MorphOS make use of dual processor?

Off topic a bit, but I used to play full screen standard 700mb DVDrips on a 266mhz P2 mobile processor with just 192mb RAM. It did have the Mobility Rage Pro ATI mobile chipset however but this is far inferior to any desktop machine's GPU card in 100s of Mhz CPU speed.

That was with Windows 98.
