    I'm looking for the cheapest route to having core image on my MDD. Prior experience with the card and model #'s would be helpful for my search on eBay. :)

    Cheapest would be GF 5200 but also slowest and limited to VGA only.
    Get a R9700/9800 on eBay. Any reference one would do. See TME buying guides: http://themacelite.wikidot.com/ati-radeon

    Personally I'd recommend Hercules 9700 or 9800 Pro. They do have 128K EEPROMs so they can be flashed with full ROMs.
