    Found a power mac G3 B&W locally in the box and took it home. Inside the Mac it has 2 rage cards. One is a rage pro with slots in it to add ram it seems. The other is a rage 128 with another card clipped onto it. Does anyone know the rarity of these cards and do the add-ons give additional memory or another purpose.

    The one with the add on card is a DVD decoder, it was an option for DVD playback. The other I would guess is a PCI ATI card for a second monitor. I am not sure its rarity if any, but you could look up by part number on ebay and see if anything comes up.

    Odd that they added a decoder board, the Rage 128 had IDCT which did most of the heavy lifting for DVD playback.
