    If anyone is looking for a replacement, try this one.
    Don't know if it is mac compatible.

    Definitely for a PC, however with a bit of elbow grease it can be flashed to mac and used in anything from the AGP Power Mac G4 to the G5!

    Exactly! I did this years ago and it worked. Better yet, this card was a PCI version and worked well in a B&W G3, with support for Core image and Quartz Extreme.

    Do you have a guide describing the appropriate procedure?

    Possibly in the future, I have a 128MB FX5200 with dual DVI. Just need a PC with a AGP slot! Which I no longer own a AGP equipped PC :rolleyes:
