Exclamation "High End" AGP Graphics Card for a Power Mac

I'm looking for a higher end graphics card for a Power Mac. It has to be AGP and have and ADC Port on it. I read the best ever made were the Radeon X800 XT and the X850 XT. Those would be nice to get...

I know that there are two pins that need to be taped for a 8x AGP card to work in a 4x machine.

I'd rather not get a flashed PC card because they won't have ADC. Though.. if someone had a really good offer for a top of the line one of those; I would be interested too!

$500 American too lol! Thats about $650 or so now!

So; after a bit of research I think I have found the ultimate card. The GeForce 7800GS seems to be the best. I found my DVI to ADC adaptor; do I think I'll try that if it would work with a non ADC graphics card. Even then; it seems that card runs around $150....

Hi.

I have an ATI Mac Radeon 9800P 256MB video card for G5. It has DVI-I and ADC ports. I don't know if it will work with your G5, but you can check it out if you want. I'm located in GTA.

Bill
send me a PM if you are interested.
