I use it - it replaced an ati radeon 9000 pro. It was a worthy upgrade for me b/c of the radeon bugs in modeler. The gf4Ti is noticeably faster than the ati. No problems at all.

It might not have ADC connection? I need that.

What price are these and are they flash rommed pc cards?

An Apple-packaged GeForce 4 Ti has an ADC and DVI connectors, the boxed kit includes a DVI to VGA converter to allow connection of VGA monitors.

BEWARE! Many GeForce 4 Ti cards on eBay don't include this converter. Read the fine print.

I'd also buy from smalldog electronics, they are a reputable apple-authorized reseller:

So I'm still trying to decide about the performace boost for the GeForce 4 Ti v. a GeForce 4MX. Does anyone have real-LW comparisons for these two cards? I'm currently running the MX-dual head from the QS2001 generation, and I am trying to figure out if there is a real performance boost in Layout with the Ti. For $400 I want to know if it does any better. If you've got a machine with this card, please run Julian's video card comparison (see this thread (http://vbulletin.newtek.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=11093)) and post your results.

Thanks.

I found one of those on ebay but the fine print said it wouldn't work with my yr.2000 model so I bid on and won a GeForce 2 64 meg card. It swopped out easy as pie and works so much better than the old 32 meg ATI card. I'm so happy with the way the nVidia works that when I buy my next mac I will get it with the biggest nVidia I can afford. ATI is history in my book.
