What model of G4 do you have?
Generally speaking, a DVI port equipped ATI Radeon 7500, ATI Radeon 9000 Pro Mac, ATI Radeon 9700 Pro Mac, or an ATI Radeon 9800 Pro Mac.
Other options are the NVIDIA GeForce2 MX, GeForce3, GeForce4 MX, or GeForce4 Titanium graphics card.
The model of your G4, and whether it is 2x or 4x AGP graphics, will determine which of the above cards can be used.
G4 AGP(450)Sawtooth Mac OS X (10.4.8) 2ghzPPC,1.62gbSDRAM, ATI9800, DVR-109,(IntHD)120&160,LaCie160,23"Cinema Display
Thanks for the recommendations. My G4 is an AGP Graphics model. I was able to find a Radeon 9800 Pro on Ebay, which I received today. However, it looks as though I will have to return it to the seller for either a replacement or a refund. I installed the card in my Mac and connected my monitor to it. When I powered up my Mac, the monitor shows an image of the graphics card with a red flashing icon next to it that looks like a transistor. I'm not positive, but I would say that the card has a bad transistor on it? I will be sending an email to the seller this evening.
Thanks for the help.
