Power Mac Graphics Card Upgrade?
I have a Power Mac G4 AGP Machine and was wondering what is the best graphics card that will go into this machine??
I dont it can but im going to ask... Are there any HD Graphics cards that will work with it??

The best card you can put in a G4 AGP (sawtooth) is a Radeon 9800 but it will really put a strain on the stock PSU. They suggest at least a 300 Watt PSU for the 9800 and your mac has a 237 Watt.
I recommend a Geforce 6200 like I have in the same tower. Uses less power than the 9800 and still supports all the OS X gui features like quartz extreme, core image, core video and core animation.
You can flash one yourself or buy one on ebay that is already flashed. The pre-flashed cards go for about 70-80.
