Hi Alex,

and happy Christmas! (if it applies to you)

Thanks for the link, I already saw that thread myself...!

Anyway, I had eyeballed on the local Ebay a still new first-generation Mac-mini that could have been enticing, especially because it met the minimum requirements I saw for Final Cut Studio 2 (1.25GHz G4 + AGP Quartz Extreme i.e. Radeon 9200 as spelt out by Apple's website).

However, after 11 years in the business I feel uneasy about doing serious post-production on a small footprint machine - call it habit. Besides, I do not have time for tests and having to rely on the Ratoc only (which I read elsewhere is not 100% reliable) was a bit of a gamble.

So a friend/supplier of mine had a Mirrored Drive Doors dual G4 1Ghz and he offered it to me for a reasonable amount (roughly what I'd paid for the mini above). But with that I get mouse & keyboard, extra drives, PCI expandability etc.
Now the quest is on for a SCSI card.

Questions:
- which SCSI card would you recommend for G4/OSX 10.4/DVDSP4?
I've always used Adaptec but I have seen on their website that they have drivers declared only up to 10.3, does it mean they won't work with 10.4?
- the dual G4 comes with 512MB RAM, is it enough or shall I increase it to 1GB? (all my production computers have 1GB)
- Is the dual 1GHz G4 enough for FC Studio2? Does it make use of the dual processor?
- Was I right to go for the dual G4 rather than a Mac-mini?

Once again your help is very much appreciated, thanks!
