    Any ideas on how to instal a second monitor on a G4 with AGP graphics? I bought a used Rage 128 card (same as already installed in the video slot), but it has a different pin connection to what exists in the available PCI slots.

    Is there a PCI video card available to do this?

    Any PCI video card that is Mac compatible should work, though I'm not sure what results you will get for dualling. Your best bet is to replace the AGP card with one that will dual; PM me for help, or do a search, there are several posts with info on AGP cards available for the G4.

    But yeah, an AGP card won't work in a PCI slot...

    Radeon 7000 PCI cards are getting rare.
    Depending on what model of G4 it is, you cannot use the newer 4x and 8x AGP cards-- for example you absolutely cannot use a card pulled from a G5.
