What would be the best/most powerful graphics video card I could get for my G4? It currently has a Rage 128 Pro. Thanks.

A radeon 9000 pro would be fine if you didn't want to break the bank. What will you be doing with this machine?

Pretty much just checking out You Tube videos and things like that. I'd like to be able to watch video in 360 or 480p. My computer freezes the screen whenever I view anything over 240p. Would this work, or am I on the wrong track? Thanks, I'm not hardware-savvy at all when it comes to this. But I LOVE this computer and don't want to give up on it.

Your asking too much sadly. Flash performance would not be so good even with a powerful card, which is the case for a lot of PowerPC machines.

Thanks for your reply. I guess eventually I'll have to spring for a Intel Mac.

Flash is going to be mostly down to your CPU, don't expect much out of 933MHz. Although if you're upgrading from a Rage 128 you would see some improvement.
