Hello all, i have a Power Mac G5 which has a ATI Radeon 9600 XT Graphics Card. I want to upgrade to a faster card (512MB) with a video out so i can plug a Plasma tv into it. This is all for the Editing work i do. Can this work? and if so, what would be a good fast card to get (for around 600.00) if you can help, it would be much appreciated

If your plasma has an HDMI input, you can get a DVI to HDMI adapter and plug your plasma right into the card you have now. Much higher res than video out.
Even if you still get a new card, use DVI instead of video out.

Great, the Plasma i've seen does have a HDMI input (it has two!!!), so that will work. But are there any Video cards for about 600 that i shoud be looking at to go with it???
