PC video card to mac - is this possible? - 10/13/05 04:47 PM

Hey, I have a GeForce 4 card from a PC I had and I was wondering if it was possible to convert it to work for a Mac, preferably a G4. Thanks

I was under the impression that the GeForce line from nVIDIA was cross-compatible...

It will most likely require flashing a MAC rom into it.

Look here and here

These sites hold LOTS of info and Roms for just this purpose and they are very helpful

Er, do you think it might be cross compatible? Because GeForce 4 isn't on either sites...almost came close to it on the first link though. :cheer:

Hey,
This is as close as I could get: http://www.cybercoment.com/macgeforce.htm
It seems it MAY work without flashing!
Good Luck! smile

Here is the link that goes to the proper info on the puppy site. I dug around figuring that either iProd went insane and thought it was possible to flash a video card with a puppy, or that he just copied the wrong link. Yep, it was on strangedogs, but in the public iDisk folder, which is the link on the top:

Puppy Site, click on iDisk on top

You guys! I posted this site once before. You must have thought I was crazy. By the way, dont spread the site around! Its a great resource and lets keep it that way. If people get to the goods great, if not tough $h!t.
