I was talking to someone online yesterday about using a pc's agp video card in a mac. What is required exactly I do not know but I do know that you use a flash utility to change the bios on the card to a mac compatible one. Anyone have any info on this? Thanx, Todd

u can "somtimee" use a PC video card - usually only if there is a MAC equivilent - they say this as often the PC equivilant edition is cheaper and what you do is flash the bios of the card - but you need to find a MAC version.

on my web site www.mathiau.com i have instrcutions but it is for NVIDIA cards - it is similar to doing ATi as well.
QUOTE Thanks
