Hey guys,

 

I notice this has been asked before But, i didnt find a discussion that answered my question specifically. (Mainly because the card im going to discuss is different.)

 

I have found some good deals on ATI 9600 Pro graphics cards, 128MB memory, 2 DVI ports. (NO ADC pins/connector/port)

But, they are listed for G5 systems. (Apparently they arent flashed PC cards either)

 

Sooo, my question is, will i be able to use it in a MDD G4?

 

Specifically a MDD G4 with the Single core 1.25Ghz PPC Processor (2003 model if i recall correctly)

 

From what i can gather, it will, i'd just need to tape pins 3 and 11 to force the card to 4x AGP instead of 8X but i'd like some opinions/answers before i go buying one.

PowerMac, Mac OS X (10.5.8), PowerMac 3,6 - 1.25Ghz - 2003
