    Please be aware that the two graphics cards I've mentioned in comment #3, albeit still available new, are 9 and 6 years old, respectively.

    If you don't want to use one single card for both MorphOS and OS4 but rather switch cards, I recommend to not try MorphOS with any of the cards I've recommended in comment #3 but with a card that's 3D-supported by MorphOS. Unfortunately, due to age these cards are very hard to come by new (currently I can find new in the EU only a 13 years old RV516-based FireMV 2250 for 48 EUR, which might not even be whitelisted by MorphOS).

    Just in case this isn't obvious anyway: MorphOS having a FireWire stack doesn't mean that all FireWire controllers or devices are supported automatically.
