i'd be soo intrigued coz i'm actually looking to do the same thing for my TiPB 1Ghz.... perhaps replace the ATI Radeon 9000 with the newer 9700 found in the Al Powerbooks with 128 MB... it should work no?

I'm telling you it won't work and if it does it won't work correctly. I tried this once before with a laptop by switching out the GeForce2 with a GeForce3 and everything lined up and connected right but the firmware didn't like it even though I flashed it to use the nVidia GeForce3 firmware but the firmware in the BIOS was fighting back and made everything look neonish and windows only saw the video as a generic P&P video card. That was with just a GPU switch.
You have a 50 50 chance with the memory but chances are it won't see past what it already has.
