    Upgrade advice needed for video card on G4
    My G4 733 MHz has a GeForce2 MX card. I'd like to upgrade to a faster card.
    Does anyone have a compatible recomendation for this G4?

    Thanks,
    Robert

    It seems like the ATI 9000 Pro Mac Edition is a pretty popular choice with a reasonable price.

    For my own info: Does that use AGP 2x/4x?

    Can also check out GeForce 3, 4
    ATI Radeon 7500, 8500

    I had the exact same situation. For $150 on eBay I got A Radeon 9000, 4x AGP 64 MB of RAM.

    The real (not flashed PC) 8500's are next to impossible to find.

    The 7500 is underpowered. (Heck for that matter even the 9000 is not a real great performer for Open GL games.)
