I managed to bag a Radeon 9200 for mine. VERY nice card. Being PCI  
it's a tad bottlenecked but it makes 10.4 more than usable on a G4- 
powered B&W.

You can flash some PCI GeForce cards. I forget which and apparently  
they don't work with Core Video even if you do (which is the only  
advantage over using a Radeon 9200). The Radeons are a better bet

Mine is a Rev 2 with a G4/500, 768MB RAM, Radeon 9200 and 2 40GB hard  
drives. Works like a charm. It's a pity it rarely gets used these days.
