Both companies would appear to be alive and well, judging by their sites. Clicking through shows copies available on Amazon. Just how hard did you try to find this!?

That's because the X850XT was only offered BTO by Apple. There's no way to buy it. The Apple 6800 cards were offered as an upgrade, but I believe they're EOL'd. You might find one, but you'll have to...

Sure. The other alternative is to have a 128k EPROM on it in place of the 64k part, and re-flash it with the correct ROM.

It's a lot easier than that. Have a look at the card. If it's got a VGA connector, you know it's a flashed card. If the card, not the GPU, is made by a licensee that's also a giveaway.

The reason I wonder about ADC is because it stands to reason that if the target market is the G4s, a large number of potential upgraders may have ADC displays. And yes, most G5s are in fact AGP. :)

My guess is you've got a flashed card, with the 64k eprom. To use the full Mac ROM, a 128k eprom is required. The reduced ROM isn't ideal, as you're learning.
