I want to make use of this extra monitor I have sitting around, so I'd like to have 2 monitors on my G3 300 blue&white. All I want is a basic PCI display card but I am finding it immpossible to locate. Another Rage 128 like the one that came with the computer would be great.

So can I just buy a basic PCI card that does not say MAC on the box? Will it work? I don''t want to pay $100+ for a graphics accelerated thing if I can just spend $35 to have two monitors working.

Your input is greatly appreciated!

Or you could try a Twin Turbo..

I think MadDog was trying to figure out how to flash a PC ROM with the Mac ROM so you could make use of the PC cards.
