    Well, at least THAT one worked out!

    Despite the fact that the seller had Windows plastered all over his auction, the pictures he took of a brand new-in-box 9200 were of Mac. Mac, Mac, Mac, Mac, Mac.

    And it's a Mac card. Even, the freaking sticker on the back of the card says Mac.

    So, here we go…

    At the moment, one Radeon 9200 128mb and one Radeon 7000 64mb. My AGP slot is empty so I could fit in the 9200 (the 9800 has a cooler that blocks SLOT-2).

    Tomorrow I will attempt to flash the FireGL card with a PC at work. Hopefully I will have all six monitors lit up tomorrow night.

    Fingers crossed.

    Yes of course.
    Do you actually use all of those? If so then what do you do that requires all that workspace?

    Glad you got a good 9200 after that whole fiasco.

    Glad that you were able to get one.

    9200s are superb cards-when playing with the B&W that I'm currently working on, I was amazed at how much of a difference it made going from the Rage 128 to the 9200 under Tiger. Short of a flashed FX5200(still working on it :) ), the 9200 is the best card you can put in a pre-AGP Mac. This is where most of my experience with it is.

    Yeah, brand new! Worth the wait.

    ----------

    I'm a Graphic Designer. My Mac Pro at work has three displays. Two for palettes and commonly accessed folders, main display for documents. Other apps like email and lesser used windows.

    As home, same thing, except I add in iTunes as well as a few other apps.

    Nothing I do requires all this. Most designers work with two displays. I could work with one if I had to. I have.

    However, I'm not doing this because I need to. I'm doing it because I want to. The Quicksilver is capable, I want it and I'm willing to pay in time and money to get it.

    Need or requirements have nothing to do with this. :)

    ----------

    This is my second one I think. The last one I picked up for $15 but it fritzed out a month or so after I got it, which had me go after the 9800 I have.

    So, the fact that this one was brand new makes me very happy!
