    I just got the new Dual Gig MDD Powermac.... I have plans on having a dual monitor setup so the ATI Radeon 9000 is going to be used to it's fullest extent.... Can I install another PCI card (Focus TView Gold PCI) to view it on my tv as well or will the two cards conflict?

    Also...does anyone know if the Focus TView Gold PCI is compatible with OS X? All the drivers I found on Focus' website are for OS 9....

    Radeon 7000 has an S-Video out, and is OSX ready for about $100.

    is it PCI?
    Does it have mmoney back guarentee if ur not happy?

    if yes then go for it
    os x will most likely have drivers for it. phone or email the manufacturer and ask about osx support.


    hope it helps

    Hey guys! Thank you very much. I'll call up ATI tomorrow. :D

    So theoretically this card won't conflict with the Radeon 9000 I already have installed, right?.....

    I run a 9000 & a 7000 to drive a 3 monitor setup.

    I haven't used the S-Video, but it is supported in the OSX ATI drivers. Make sure to follow the install procedure (Driver install, shut down, card install, reboot?), else you can fsck things up.

    Also, make sure you buy the Mac edition of the card (check dealmac, pricewatch, etc).

    Mine was $109 shipped.

    Call me a dumbass! I installed the card first then the software.... so far it seems okay. What's gonna happen at this point? Don't know....hopefully it won't do any damage.....
