motion video card hacks?

ok, i got a g4 dual 1.42 fw 800 model cpu. i have 2gb of ram and i just upgraded the graphics card to the gforce ti 4600 with 128MB of ram on it...

now it seems that only 5 cards will work. and even worse the card i can get is a 9800 pro with no adc --- so what the hell do i do with my 20in cinema display i just got in jan????

It seems there really is only one option:

(Like in the other thread): go try to find a 2nd hand Radeon 9700 OEM.

I'm sure Apple will get alot of feedback on this issue.
Practically Apple is leaving almost all G4s out. Not many bought the BTO 9700 back then, and the 9800 lacks ADC. Other cards won't work.

Motion suddenly becomes expensive:
You own a Dual 1.42 GHz G4 with GeForce 4 Ti. Not a bad setup! But.... not Motion compatible.
So needed:
Radeon 9800 ($ 350)
DVI to ADC adapter ($ 100)

An extra $ 450...
