    I plan on getting a Dell U2410 sooner or later, but I'm concerned about it's native 1920 x 1200 resolution and my Sawtooth G4. Right now my G4 is my OS 9 gaming machine running at 500Mhz 1.25 GB, and with a 128 Rage.
    I figure the Rage isn't enough to power the monitor at it's native reso so could someone recommend me a good card that will? Alternatively does anyone know if OS 9 looks remotely good at a high resolution?

    I had my MDD with OS 9 running at 1650 x 1080 with my 9600XT flashed PC card. No 3D support with that card, but the 2D was great. And the icons and menu bar were tiny.

    I successfully used 9 on my MDD with a Radeon 9000 connected to a Dell 248WFP.

    Alright, looks like I'm going to do a bit of shopping around.

    Thanks everyone!
