Like Frank I'm a bit wary of upgrade boards. I have one sitting in my old PowerMac 8500 that turned it into a G4 and while it performed admirably (still would were I to crank it up, which I haven't done in two years), I wasn't able to use standard startup CDs for diagnosing problems -- would've had to roll my own trouble-shooting and installer CDs, which I never got around to doing. (Thankfully I never needed to run diagnostics or reinstall the OS from a CD -- just installed same on the second internal drive and booted from that to dx the primary one.)

I also upgraded my old Powerbook 520c with a Newer Technology PPC card that came with an extra 8MB RAM on board. Never had a lick of trouble with it and that upgrade saved my bacon when I couldn't afford a brand new machine, but needed the PPC to run newer apps. That machine also still runs happily and I need to use it to hook up and get files off old SyQuest EZ carts if I can, so will have to plug it in and see what I can rig up to make it happen.
