A correction: FastMac doesn't change the onboard cache chips, they DISABLE them because the G4 chip already includes 512K of L2 cache that is faster than the 1MB soldered to the CPU board.

Going to 1GB of RAM is almost useless without a G4. The G4/550 feels a lot faster because it has a very quick cache, offsetting the very s-l-o-w SDRAM of a Pismo.
