Graphics card upgrade

Do I have to buy a graphics card specifically made for mac or can I buy any one? Is there mac and PC versions of the Radeon 9200 for example. Basically, I need a card with s-video that isn't too expensive. Is there a way of converting other outputs into s-video?

Thank you.

yes, mac graphics cards have mac firmware.. There is a mac version of the Radeon 9200, but its not as inexpensive as the PC version.

here is a link to amazon..

you might be able to find it cheaper on ebay..

and just to let you know, PC cards will NOt work, unless you flash their firmware, but its not really worth doing, becuase if you mess up, you fry your card.
