I have a 5200 in my Dell/MAC OSX 10.4.3 do i have to do anything to put in an ATI9800PRO

Do i have to reinstall MAC OSX to get it to see the new card ?

Does the 9800Pro support support Core Image, Quartz Extreme and OpenGL & how do i get it working ?



Should i stay with the 5200 and if so how do i get it give me Core Image, Quartz Extreme and OpenGL


Should i go with the 9800PRO
