I'm curious about the best way to upgrade my old Performa 550. Basically I just want to see what it can do, so I really have no purpose for it besides maybe playing those old mac games and just goofing off with it. I know I'll probably end up spending more on it than what it's really worth but that's ok.

I'm curious if this 2G would be overkill or if I should look at something a bit smaller.

Also, what about the Sonnet Presto Plus to add a little more RAM and Ethernet support?

Thanks! Your comments/suggestions are appreciated!

Wow... definitely look on eBay. 2 GB SCSI drives should be like $5 - $15 there.

I've been toying around with the Presto Plus idea myself for quite some time. While it'd be neat, I'm still having a hard time justifying a $100 purchase for my $5 LC III. On the other hand I can totally see myself caving in just because I think it'd be fun to deck out my machine as much as possible. If you have the money I say go for it.

just perusing We Love Macs, I can't begin to imagine how they've stayed in business. iMac G4 800 with a 15" screen for $500 is retarded, let alone the "regular price" of $800. Pioneer DVR-107's for over $200? Nonsense.
