I've never really wokred with Mac's but a friend of mine is attempting to upgrade his. iIt is an Imac G4 and we can't seem to get the case open. I know, I know yuou are laughing at me :whistling: but I know little to nthing about macs and we are trying to avoid braking the clips on the case. We are attempting to put in a new graphics card.
