I have replaced the Radeon 9200 video card in my Mac G3. The card I replaced is a Radeon 9200. I am wondering if anyone knows if this card would be compatible, and able to be used in a Power Mac 8600, I own?

Thank you

Which 8600 do you have? There are 3 models; 200/250/300.

Also what OS are you running on the 8600?

If your PowerMac is the 8600/300 and you are running Mac OS 9, then the 9200 might be compatable but I'm really just guessing here after a fair while searching the net for info/answers.

I'm running OS 9.1 on a Mac 8600/300.

You mentioned searching the web for info; do you have any suggestion for the direction I might take in that regard?

Thanks for all your assistance.

I was more referring to myself spending a considerable amount of time trying to syphon any info I could with regards to your situation.

I found various tidbits, nothing concrete but the best I did find was reference to the Radeon 9000 being compatable.

If you can update to 9.2.2 (see link at bottom of post) the Radeon 9200 will probably work. I can't give you a definite answer as I was unable to find any reference to anybody doing the very thing you are doing with the exact mac/os you have.

From the following info it does appear that you will be able to install that card with the only added requirements I could find being an update to OS 9.2.2 and that your Mac needed to have 256Mb of RAM and be a G3, which I'm pretty sure yours is.
