Radeon 8500 Mac/PC in Dual 867 help...

in Genius Bar edited January 2014
Hello... I'm generally fairly knowledgeable about Macs but before going out and spending some cash, I was wondering if anyone knew how to go about flashing the ROM on a Radeon 8500 video card... I bought a dual 867 g4 with nvidia geforce 4mx, but I want to go dual monitors, and have svideo out for dvd's.... thus, i need a radeon 8500 or 9700.... 8500 has similar performance and twice the ram so its better for dual monitor...

the pc version costs about ~$85 while the mac version is ~$185... i had heard whispers about the hardware being identical, i mean its just an AGP slot... right? so can i just buy a pc card? flash it? etc?

any help would be great!!!
