Hey folks, is there somewhere I can get a really cheap video card for a Performa 6200CD? Basically, this machine works fine; I just want to be able to do three things:

1. View my monitor in thousands of colors at 832x624. (Currently, if I want thousands of colors, I am limited to 640x480. At anything higher, I only get 256 colors.)

2. Surf the web faster (even after I download a page, it takes forever for my computer to render it.

3. Play Doom II. Right now I have to play it on the "Low Quality" setting.

So my question is, can I get a cheap video card that would solve these problems?

In short - no. There are no video cards for the 6200 class machines, beside the Apple video editing card.

There is no way to upgrade the video memory, and the video controler is not upgradeable either.
