    Encore/ST G4 Duet

    I been using the Encore/ST G4 Duet dual-1.8GHz in my G4 Silverdoor and have never regretted the buy. I am able to run Apps like Motion 2 + Civilization IV and other games and apps that need 1.8GHz or faster. This G4 was a 867MHz and with the upgrade I have noticed the Mac start up 2x as fast Apps open quicker and any App that does real time editing like Final Cut rocks with this card.

    MDD woes...

    I really hate the fact that since I have a MDD machine, that I'm left out in the cold when it comes to CPU upgrades.

    2x1.8 vs. 2x1.6

    I have now a Sonnet 1.2GHz Single CPU. I am considering to upgrade to one of the mentioned cpu's. Is it anyone who has tested both or have some experience? What difference will 0.2GHz make? I am doing a lot of Photoshop CS2. I have a Digital Audio. 1.5GB of RAM and SATA disks.
