    I can't remember if it's the 7000 or the 9200 but it is the Mac edition. It has a VGA and DVI option with a fan on top side and square black heatsink on the bottom of the card.

    I can boot using the original card. I booted with the Radeon card in but got no display. I thought maybe the drivers needed updating, so I d/l their latest updates and now the Mac just stays cold when I put the original card in. Help !

    well if it's the 7000 it's obsolete already, and if it's the 9200 it's only a smidge away from being obsoleted as well. So if you have a new Mac Pro (or even a fairly old one), the 7000 is out of the question and the 9200 *may* work depending.

    Also, (even though it's hard to tell from ATI's horrible site), but the 9200 seems to *not* be a PCIe card which if true, means it would not work at all.

    I neglected to say - this is for a G4 Quicksilver running 10.4.11
