    I have a G5 2.0 dual with PCI slots. I currently have a 256 Radeon 9800 Pro Mac edition in the AGP. That is connected to my 20 Apple LCD.

    At present I have a 15 inch Studio Display connected to a radeon 8500 Mac PCI card.

    What can I upgrade the 8500 with? What is a higher performance card that still works in PCI and works with a G5 mac?

    I am not looking for gaming performance, but enough to drive another 20 inch LCD with no worries. The 8500 does not like my other 20 inch LCD.

    Why don't you connect a second display to the 9800?
