You just need a AGP video card. Here's a list of ones that will work in your machine: http://www.welovemacs.com/agpvideocards....

Ralph I believe the old-macs site is just for G5 Mac Pro cards unless he's expanded. I've bought from him. Just checked and he has expanded. Good source and nice guy.

You can't

reasonably upgrade a laptops VGC as they are soldered to the logic board.

It takes a lot of expensive equipment and time to change, so much so that it's cost prohibitive on any but new machines.

Whichever answer is helpful please remember to mark it accepted.

Good Luck,
