THe GeForce 2 in my PowerMac is slowly cancelling its subscription to Life Magazine, and I am in need of a new one, to replace it. Would I be better off looking into getting a PC based GFX Card, and flashing it to Mac Spec, or should I scour eBay, and Mac sites until I find the card that I think will do the job?

The symptoms for its death, are a loss of the Cube Effect during Fast User Switching, no real Aqua effects, and Solitaire XL won't display properly. I'm not really interested in purchasing another computer quite yet, so this one will have to do.

Do you have any suggestions into what to look at for the G4, whose specs are PMG4, 667MHz, Digital Audio, with an AGP GFX card I believe.

Thanks.
