32MB if it's a Mac card.  Are you telling me that Sun uses the Mac
(OpenFirmware) cards as Sun parts?!

You can flash a Radeon 7000 PCI DDR from PC to Mac, and if you can get
your hands on an original ATI Radeon 8500 AGP (with the DVI-I connector,
not DVI-D), then you can flash that as well.  I'm using a flashed Radeon
7000 ($35) and Radeon 8500 ($48) in my custom built Gigabit G4.  Here's
