The Radeon Mac Edition was followed by the Radeon 7000 and then the  
Radeon 9200, which is still currently available (at OWC, <http://eshop.macsales.com/ 
 >, for example).

Those are the retail cards. I don't know the situation on the flashed  
PC card market, however.

My B&W G3 is a rev. 1 with 4-port FirmTek SATA card driving 80 (OS)  
and 250 (data) GB WD drives, 1.1 GHz PPC750FX, 1 GB RAM and a Radeon  
9200. Makes a great server running Tiger (10.4). Only thing I need to  
add to it now, is a gigabit Ethernet card.

You can drink 'em pretty, but you can't drink 'em smart.
