Thanks for the feedback.
The Mac I bought is coming with a ATI 9650.
The Mac itself is a M9748LL/A Power Mac 7,3 A1047 early 2005 model so it looks like AGP will be my only option and the X800XT.
Does anyone have any idea where to pick one up?
Genuine Apple X800/X850XT? Good luck finding one.
But you can always try your luck reflashing a PC version (could work, could not. I had one card that worked after reflashing and one that refused to work - hopefuly I got it's original BIOS backuped).
PC version will not work with MorphOS without reflashing (X1950 will).
Watch out for 'fake' Apple cards, there used to be quite a lot reflashed X800's sold as genuine Apple ones. They would ofc work in MorphOS, but why should you overpay for a reflashed PC version? The genuine one is a blue one with a "monster head" sticker on the radiator, AGP PRO pinout with additional ADC power connector, no Molex power connectors, one DVI and one ADC port in the back.
