        I can't run X on my PMac9500 because the ixMicro 8M vid card, that
was in it when i got it, isn't yet supported (according to the docs; " Real
Soon Now...").

        I have tried, and failed so far, to locate a 2M or 4M version of
the card.
        I check various catalogs for an alternative, and only find ATI
Radeons for upwards of $200. X is cool, but that's too much.

        Any suggestions? Other cards, or anybody got a supported card they
would part with?
