    Reccomendations on a Video Card upgrade.
    I am currently running a G4 933, 1gig RAM, with two internal hard drives, superdrive. I am looking to upgrade the stock video card.

    I am looking to:
    add dual monitor support (2 VGA monitors)
    I would like to run Motion as well.

    I do a lot of photoshop work and final cut pro work.

    Any reccomendations? I was originally looking at the Radeon 9800 Pro but am a little concerned it might be too much card for the computer.

    thanks,

    9800 pro will be fine...trust me i have a 800x in my dual g5 and thats a little to much but i think that the 9800 (not the pro) is a little cheaper and will be great for what your doing

    Thanks for the input. Any good resources for buying online? I checked www.pricegrabber.com and all I get is a listing for the 9800 Pro Mac edition. What is difference between the Pro and the standard

    thx,
