Default really, really outdated GPU, but its difficult.

the GPU in my PowerPC has 32MB VRAM total, which, needless to say, sucks.

because its a mac, and its older than most around these days, im not sure whether it would be replacable without alot of hassle.

it cant even play youtube vids


hassle or no hassle in replacing a suckish GPU on an old mac?

hmm... I'm thinking that it might be the CPU and not the GPU that is stopping you from playing YouTube video's....

ive already established that its probably not worth it upgrading this thing, because its not intel, and is basically a dead end after OS 10.4, but was hoping that i could atleast do something to allow myself some kind of digital media capability.
