I started my G4 collection with a couple of cubes. I then brought the first PCI card 400 MHz version which I upgraded the processor to a G4 1 Gig. I fitted it with a 128 Mhz graphics card and a sonnet USB plus IDE card 

It's odd having a computer that boots into both OS8.6 and OSX 10.5.

I also have four x G4 mirror door versions. Three of them are single 1.25 MHz processors and the top 1.42 MHz dual but upgraded to dual 1.6 MHz with a Sonnette upgrade card. One has the Apple 128 Nvidia graphics upgrade and the other have the ATI 128 cards and the best machine has the ATI 256 card. 

It's a shame that the recent upgrades of Adobe Flash have rendered them useless.

welcome to the group, if you want to hack your adobe flash player to act like a newer one, go to Low End Mac, search for adobe hack, it's easy to follow and set up.   Nice collection you have, I am still using the last Powerbook G4 and Powermac g5 dual core.
