    I have a G4 Sawtooth that has a processor upgrade to 1ghz and has 1.25g of ram. My problem is that my current video card is getting flakey. I would like to buy a card that will support dual monitors and also Quartz extreme. Can someone give me some recommendations on what to look at.

    Thanks,
    ALvie

    If you plan to play games, get Radeon 9800 - it's a pretty fast card, otherwise get 9600.

    The 9600 will not work since it is 4x and the sawtooth is only 2x.

    Isn't it backward compatible?
