I'm in the same boat, actually.  We just got given several older macs
including a Quadra 650 and a Centris 650, but the majority of our
daughters' educational games -- while they are Windows/Mac CDs --
require a Power Mac.  This is a Quadra 840av, right?  Which would still
be an '040.

What'd be nice for the girls would be to get our hands on aPower Mac
7100 or 8100.  Or better yet, an iMac.  But even a 7100 would likely
have to wait until I'm working again ...  right now we have trouble just
scraping up enough parts to keep the machines we have running.  We've
had a spate of hardware failures recently.
