Just realized my video card is going bad and have an ATI Radeon 9600 XT card w/ 128 mb ddr laying around and was wondering if the two would be compatible? ive heard some rumors about being able to tape over some pins and make it work but was wondering if there were any other answers. The box doesnt mention that it works w/ macs, only windows, but im hoping for a miracle hear.

tnx

There was a mac version, so you can flash it. Will NOT be drop in compatible though.

so would flashing it make it work? and how would you do this?

Get the ROM, you'll need a PC and ATIFlash to do it.

The flash will only give you video from the VGA port, the DVI will be disabled

Also you still have to tape the pins unless you have an older Sawtooth G4

thanks for the replies guys...looks like this might be a little more trouble than its worth though. i might just try to fix my existing one and replace the fan. anyone know of any sites that might offer some aftermarkets?

thanks again
