    I just thought of something. My mac only has one agp slot. So how can I install two graphics cards in my mac??

    I wanted an os9 one (ati 8500 AGP) and an os x one (9700)

    Suggestions?

    SO which ATI would you recommend for the AGP slot and the other for the PCI slot? Or does it matter?

    I already have an 8500 AGP that I was going to use for OS9.

    I was hoping to have an OSX card I could use that does coreimage as well.

    For any kind of graphics acceleration in OS X, you must use an AGP card. I believe OS 9 will do its general video acceleration on a PCI card.
