hello all...im able to get a g5 at an incredible discount its almost to good to pass up...BUT...

i cant custom configure it i have to get the apple store configuration (dual 2ghz, ati 9600 etc)

does anyone know if there is a ati 9800 pro graphics card that i could buy and put in my powermac g5....

also do you think it would be worth it if the discoutn price is 500 of what apple sells if for....but i dont get it configured the way i want??

thanx guys

ATI announced that they will offer a retail version of the 9800. It will also run with a G4, which the Apple store card won't. I think it's because it has special G5 optimizations, but I'm not sure about this.

So, you can buy this system and get a 9800 later.
