the display card (ati?) that came in my old powerwave?
Or the built in display in my 7600?
I'm stealing the hard drive and memory, should i steal the vid card too?

both are 64-bit, and so relatively slow, but if you do indeed have a PCI video card in the PowerWave you should grab it. It may be a Rage II or Rage Pro with AV capabilities.

Some of those old ATI cards will run with 8 or even 16MB of RAM http://macgurus.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
Some have both old-Mac and PC/VGA video connectors.
The card will work in ANY PCI Mac - from the 7500 to the G4/Sawtooth http://macgurus.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

I did take the VRAM from my 7600 and put it into a PCurve.... but I use the PCI video -ix3D 8MB.
