    G4 733Mhz PCI VGA
    Will a PCI Video card work with a PowerMac G4 733Mhz. I want to know because the AGP card I have does not support dual displays and I hope to get a 1 VGA port PCI card and use it for the second display.
    This is my computer specs on every mac

    i believe it will. i have the exact same computer and i have a dual monitor set-up, although it was installed by Apple when i bought the computer.

    As long as the Mac has a driver for the card you have you are gold. Install it and try - it can't hurt but you may not get the correct resolution without the correct driver.

    Just replace your AGP Board with a dual monitor one like a Radeon 9200. PCI boards are slower, and sometimes more expensive.

    All that I really care about is reading email, watching movies, and maybe presentations I don't care about gaming so if it will be better to do that stuff with a PCI card than I might as well do that instead of paying $50 my max price is $20.
