    Hi, pls be patient with my English, i'll try to do my best.
    Finally i decided last week to upgrade an old Powerpc G4 733 Quicksilver (model before 2002 vers.)
    I changed combo with a good Pioneer dvr-112d.
    Now i'm asking u an indication: find a video card better than nvidia mx 32 installed with two important targets
    1) Should support wide screen 1680x1850
    2) should support core image tech in order to work better with last Tiger.
    reading around i'm sure fx5200 satisfy nr2 but doesn't support wide, ati like 9600 had big problems of compatibility with my G4 model.
    Pls could u point me to the right way ?
    wich is the best video card compatible with a 733 ghz quicksilver ?

    About Hard disk, one more question , i have 128 gb limitation.
    I'm not gonna change the controller, is there any chance to mount a 7200rpm 16mb 250gb for my system ?

    Thanks in advance for your patience.

    The system cannot recognise a drive above 128GB without a different controller card.

    I'm only really here at night.
    There are numerous ATI Radeon cards out there that will work in a QS, everything from 32mb to 256mb of vram.

    If you can find one, a FLASHED pc 9800 will give you great performance, CI support, and both VGA & DVI outputs too.
    Check ebay 4 sure, and also over at macnn's marketplace !

    I bought one last year for $75 for my QS 867 and love it :D

    I'm pretty sure it does support 1680 x 1050.
    This resolution is simply mot listed in the Analog monitor display modes *

    You should look at this one:
