G4 (400) Processor Upgrade

Hi All, I currently have an older MAC G4 400Mhz AGP computer with 4 dimm slots. It has the original ATI AGP graphics card but I've made some changes.

I have added a Pioneer 105 DVD Burner along with RAM for a total of 704 meg. The original 5400 rpm main hard drive I've switched out to a 7200 RPM
Quantum 40 GB with 2mb cache. I left the slave drive in place and it's a 10 GB 5400 rpm Quantum.

I'm thinking of adding a 1.2 Ghz processor upgrade to this machine as I find it
a little slow when running Garageband V1.2.1, I use the machine as a hobby computer and mainly to run iLife 04 ( I did send for the iLife 05 update).

I am looking for the most stable product on the market, I'd also like to purchase the upgrade from a Canadian supplier. What processor upgrade would you recommend and how much should I expect to pay for one? I would also be doing the processor upgrade myself as I've already done a lot of surgery to the G4. Somewhere down the line I would consider updating the video card as well, what would you folks recommend and how much should I pay?

Many Thanks in advance,
