Will a PNY GeForce4 MX440 AGP work in my Quicksilver G4?

    Basically, the closer that the design of the board is to NVIDIAs 'reference' board, the more likely you are to be successful.

    I seem to remember, that as long as you go for a basic board (i.e. no fancy TV out etc.) the PNY boards are usually just the reference boards rebranded.

    I managed to get a GeForce 2 MX board to work in a Graphite G4. You'll lose the ADC interface and probably end up with only a basic VGA interface, but there is a good chance that it'll work. You may get a few visual anomolies from time to time, but the board should work fine.

    Your best bet, is to try and get hold of an Apple board that has been pulled from an older machine - there are usually a few on eBay at any one time.

    Good luck...
