    Hey,

    I was itnerested in buying an ATI PCI Radeon 7000 for my Yikes G4 but want to know if i can buy a normal one available from most shops or do i need a special flashed apple one to get it to work?

    Many Thanks,

    Peace

    Only graphics cards that have been "flashed for Macs" will work with Macs. This is because Macs use Open Firmware and a PowerPC processor as opposed to a BIOS and an x86 processor.
