I have a tax return check coming and I am considering getting the Apple 23" Studio display for my 2004 MDD PowerMac G4. However, I have the stock Radeon 9000 Pro with 64MB of RAM. Will this card be able to push the 23" display, or should I upgrade the video card too?

Also, can anyone recommend a PCI SATA card for the PowerMac?


Thanks in advance!

The only display with issues is the 30". They all have a DVI connector. So, if your card has either ADC or DVI, you will be fine. If it has ADC and NOT DVI, you can get a $30 adapter to make it work.

I had the same configuration: dual 1.42 MDD machine with stock Radeon 9000 64MB VRAM, and I ran the 23" ADC-based Cinema Display with no problems. The card also has a DVI port, so you can run Apple's latest version of the monitor. Enjoy.

Check out Sonnet Technologies' SATA card. I can vouch for it being an excellent card on my G5 duallie. Due diligence: http://sonnettech.com/product/tempo-x_sata44.html

They also sell a 2 port version, but this one is the real value imho.
