    I'm getting a Power Mac G4 with AGP graphics from a friend of mine for really cheap. I've been looking into upgrading the video card for it though. I have an ATI Radeon 9200 AGP (8X/4X) video card that's just collecting dust. I'd like to try and use this video card in the Power Mac.

    I've found drivers on ATI's website for the Mac Edition of the Radeon 9200. Would these work with my video card, or does the card have to be a Mac Edition one?

    The Mac version of the ATI Radeon 9200 is a PCI card, so I don't know if the drivers will work. As well, you need to flash the firmware of the PC card with the Mac version of the firmware and since the Mac version of the card is PCI, I don't know if that will work either.
