    I am currently running a dual 1.25ghz G4 and need to upgrade my video card to run Motion. So, my question is what is the cheapest video card that will work with motion and where can I buy it. I have searched for the nvidia geforce 5200 fx for macs, but i can not find it anywhere and same with the ati radeon 9600 pro. If anyone knows where I can buy one and for how much let me know please.

    I know there were a couple of people selling both of those cards on eBay a short while ago. Might be worth checking there. They seemed to be reasonably priced.

    Well, Apple recommends a 9800 Pro or higher to run it, so I would look on eBay for a flashed PC 9800 Pro. You can find them for around $250 instead of the $350 that the retail Mac version costs.

    Will the 9800 and the 9600 pro both work in a G4? Because, on ATI website it only says that it is a bto option for the G5.
