    PowerMac G4's Video Card Fan
    so i was recently given a PowerMac G4 and have been fixing it up to working order. it runs well now but there is one problem, the video card's fan (ATI Rage 129) seems to be on its last leg. it makes a LOT of noise for being such a small fan.

    i tried taking it apart, cleaning it, no luck. any suggestions on where to look for a replacement fan? or if necessary, a new video card that will work with my computer? any advice is GREATLY appreciated, thank you!

    well, i figured it out. after checking around, i didn't need to have that fan running since it's close to the bigger case fan. no more noise, horray!

    does anyone know where to find wireless components that would work for a PowerMac G4 (that isn't the $180 discontinued Airport card)?
