    I've decided to get another video card, for my PCI slot, so I can add a 2nd display. Where on Earth can I find a good quality video card (Nvidia, ATI) for my PCI slot that I can connect my 15" Apple flat screen monitor (ADC) to?? Please guys, I need your help!! Thanks a bunch.

    You can go directly to ATI's website and order a 7500 from them.

    you can't buy a radeon 7500 mac edition from ati. it isn't in the shopati area or price list. OEM only. besides, it's AGP only and cloud wants PCI. You can however buy a Radeon 7000 mac edition. I bought one recently for my B&W G3. I haven't had any trouble with it, seems to speed up games pretty well and it helps with window dragging/scrolling in OS X. The problem you face, cloud, is that (afaik) there aren't any PCI cards with an ADC port. The Radeon7000 has a DVI port, so if you're willing to spend another $150 for an adapter on top of the $110 for the card, then go for it. Good card for the price and PCIness.
