    I've got one of the early Dual G5 2 GHz Power Macs. I've got a 23in Cinema Display and a 19" Sony CRT side by side as an extended desktop - all works fine on a Radeon 9600 (had to replace the original graphics card which went faulty)

    I'm now buying a Wacom Cintiq LCD/tablet and would like to have all 3 working (basically having the Cintiq mirror the Cinema Display) My supplier says I can't do this on my particular Mac as it doesn't have Express PCI slots.
    Is he correct or is there a graphics card I can get that will go into a PCI or PCI-X slot that will drive the Cintiq, or am I stuck with 2 displays max?

    Simple -- get a PCI video card -- ATI Radeon 7000 or 9200 maybe.
    You'll just have to work harder tracking one down.

    Simple indeed - just bought a brand new 9200 on eBay.
