Advice on Video Card Upgrade for PM G4

in Current Mac Hardware edited January 2014
I recently purchased a PowerMac G4 dual 450, which is running OS X Tiger. The unit came with the original 2x AGP video card (Rage 128 16 mb). I am looking for an inexpensive video card upgrade that supports ADC. Will the ATI Radeon 7500 Mac Edition (32 mb) work in this machine so I can use the QE feature in Tiger?

    You can run a radeon 9800 128mb if you tape over two of the connectors on it. It has the fastest G4 compatible GPU. If you're really adventurous, you can flash a cheap PC version of the card.

    Edit: I'm not sure if taping is required on the mac version of the card. What taping does is make the card work in a 2x slot instead of just 4x and 8x slots.
