    Just wondering if the Radeon 8500 video card I have in my G4 will support a new 20" Cinema Display???

    System reqirements One of the following:

    * Power Mac G4 or G5 with NVIDIA graphics card or ATI Radeon 7500 or better graphics card and Mac OS X v10.2.8 or later
    * PowerBook G4 with DVI port and Mac OS X v10.2.8 or later
    * Windows-based PCs with graphics card that supports DVI ports with full single link digital bandwidth and VESA DDC standard for plug and play setup.

    How much memory do you have on the video card? If its at least 64mb it should be fine.

    The video card does have 64MB. I did see those specs for the display, just wasn't sure if the 8500 was "better" than a Radeon 7500...as far as supporting the cinema display.
