ATI 9700 MAC OEM Where can i get one?

hey i just picked up an ADC apple display and my ati 9000 is getting old but the 9800 only has vga and dvi. Anyone know where you can get a 4x 9700 mac card? otherwise any know if ATI will come out with a new 9800 thats 4x that has both ADC and DVI?

trust me on this.

it would be cheaper to buy a 9800 retail and the ADC / DVI kit from Apple ($99) than to find a 9700 OEM...

another option would be this...

http://eshop.macsales.com/Catalog_It...=APL630ATI96G4

which is a G5 card adapted to work on the G4 AGP models. this coupled with the ADC / DVI Apple dongle (again $99) would get you setup with dual DVI and be pretty speedy too.

I think he wanted ADC not DVI, therefore the 9600 won't help him.

again, what i proposed will give him 1 adc (via the $99 dongle) and 1 adc non-powered.

this is the item I am referring too...

any DVI can port to ADC...

therefore the 9600 may be a good solution.

Same goes for the 9800.

Briliant card for the upper Dual G4 series. And now $100,- cheaper.

Yes.... But I wanted to mention the fact that the 9800 would be the best card, using your propsed DVI to ADC adapter.

It is a mere summary of your posts

well the DVI port is fine, its the VGA analog port that bothers me about the 9800. the perfomance of the 9800 to the 9700 is nearly identical. If i can use the unpowered ADC port from the 9600 and hook up the $100 DVI-ADC converter then thats an option so spend around the cost of 9800 with less perfomance. Or wait for ATI to (crossing fingers) a 256MB 9800 thats 4x and has both ADC and DVI. I have one ADC display and a DVI display. I dont want anything to do with VGA.
