Hey everybody, everything in peace?

So, I have a PPC G4 (http://www.apple-his...=date&order=ASC) but with single-core processing. I upgraded to 10.5.8 and would now like to upgrade the video card. He is with the following video card
Model Group for Integrated Circuits: GeForce4 MX
Type: Monitor
Bus: AGP
Slot: SLOT-1
VRAM (Total): 64 MB
Vendor: NVIDIA (0x10de)
Device ID: 0x0184
Revision ID: 0x00a3
ROM Revision: 2032

I wonder if any 4x AGP video card it serves, or has the specific models.

Thanks!

You can either install a mac graphics card suitable for your computer (usually quite expensive) or you can hack a pc graphics card by loading a mac bios onto it. I've done it before a few years ago to get an ati 9700 or 9500 maybe to work on a g4 cube. you should check out: http://themacelite.wikidot.com/

Good luck
