    Yes, but price very much depends on your location. Currently, eBay Germany only lists an offer by a US dealer (59 EUR + 54 EUR shipping, new, more than 10 available). 113 EUR for the card is pretty steep.

    That's why it isn't based solely on the network support issue, I guess ;-)

    If any of you find X1900GT cards in the US, I can ship them to Germany for about $23.00 via first class postage, or about $35 using priority mail.
    The card I own cost me $20.

    And the PCI-E G5 under MorphOS would be able to use PC video cards for R500 and above Radeon. Currently this would allow the X1950XTX to be used, which is quite a fast card with 512mb of vram.
    Yesterday, I bought a Radeon HD 6750 for my quad on eBay for $25.
    This card should eventually be supported under MorphOS (Mark has one).

    As to fan control. Give me a version with the fans set to full and I'll add manual fan trimmer pots until software control is enabled.
