The thing with the G4 cards is it supports dual but only one @ a time where as the ATI radeon
should do both (I know the 8500 does thou I still have not hooked mine up) & give you a better
picture to boot. The only thing the 7500 is slower & will not support directx 8 special features as there will be better games coming out this year with directx 8 support built in. Warning I took a chance with ATI as the driver updates have always been slow in the past, they claim it will be better now, thou they have also done that in the past. BTW the retail 8500 only cost me around $217 US shipped to US thru ebay if you know what you are doing & what you want to pay you can be signed in & have 3 bid windows open @ once really to up the bid you can grab one cheaper in the last 30 seconds of bidding. watch it some claim retail & they are not I looked @ the box @ best Buy first & wrote down all the accessies like dongle DVI to VGA & S-Video to RCA composite.
