    I'm getting a new sawtooth soon and it only has a 16mb rage 128 in it and I'd like to upgrade that. So my question is if I upgrade to a Radeon 7000 32MB PCI, will it run Quartz Extreme or will I have to go with an AGP card?

    PCI Extreme will allow you.

    Though if I were you, I'd just go for an AGP card. It'll be cheaper and faster. Check eBay.

    I wish I had AGP in my PMG4. :(

    I am checking ebay and the cheaper cards are definitely the Radeon 7000 PCIs. AGP cards run me up at least $10 more
