    Default ATI Radeon 9600 Pro RV350 in a G4 MDD?

    I have a dual 867 MDD with stock GeForce card. I have been offered a 64mb 9600 pulled from a G5, but seem to remember seeing somewhere that this card won't work in a G4. Can anyone confirm whether this is the case?
    Thanks.

    They need to be modified. OWC even sells pre-mod OEM 9600's.

    Won't be able to support ADC. Tapping or blocking the #3 and #11 "lines" on the card are the only trick and are detailed on a couple sites and referenced in the MDD Reference - video cards - in the FAQ Index.

    Yes, they work.

    Thanks for that. Not a good buy then, even at a cheap price from the sounds of it.
    I don't need the ADC, just the DVI though.

    Can't find a thread on the 9600 in the MDD section, can you post a link to where it is, or links to sites that show the mods. I'll probably buy it anyway to play with, at $30 it isn't expensive.

    Hmm, that link just says "Sorry - no matches. Please try some different terms." so, not too good just yet!

    Sorry, search links must have a "timelimit " on it I think. It was just 9600 and MDD

    Default I have two G5 - 9600 ATI cards

    One is in an MDD, and the other is in a Digital Audio.

    Tape on pins 3 and 11 (google ATI 9600 and Techseekers and you will find a great article on it).

    Again as described, no ADC (but both DVI work, as well as TV out via the DVI dongle output).

    Great little (fanless) video card, highly recommended.

    Pity, Techseekers doesn't appear to be live any more.
    How can I identify pins 3 and 11? And what sort of tape did you use?
    Thank you.
