The 9800

Because it is a faster and better card with more memory and it is the only one that will fit in a G4... :p the FX 5200 is G5 only ;)

If you are looking for a cheap card that should support Core Image, OWC has 9600 Pros that are modified to work in G4s for about half the price of 9800s. I would almost suggest going this route and save for a better computer, with all the bells and whistles, then spend on the 9800.

My 2 cents.
