1920x1200 VidCard for old PC? Dell Dimension 4100/Win98se & PowerPCB

I guess this thing is from the B&W G3 era or a tad later. I bought it because I thought it looked like a good home for a Mac. Turns out it was a generic case design used by Mac Clone makers as well as Dell. Don't really care if it has AGP, don't recall and I haven't looked.

I'm figuring any capable/Win98se compatible PCI VidCard that can be flashed for Mac compatibility would be a good long term investment for the toy box.

Any suggestions?

Searched and downloaded the service manual again. AGP 2X slot on the  board that supports a 4X card. AGP would be second choice, then again it might be a lot less expensive?

LOL! I just beat the snot outta the Voodoo 3 card and I finally got it working in true-color at 1920x1280. I was stuck at 1600x1200 on the Dell and the 14" HP 1080p CheapBook using the old KVM switch that died recently.

The new switch pretty much kinda, sorta works now that they sent me a replacement. I had the HP running at 1920x1200 for the first time with the borked first switch that arrived. Now the Dell is running at native res on my panel. The Quicksilver always worked at 1920x1200 over DVI, but now I've got all three machines working well enough that I'm going to keep this KVM switch even if it still seems a bit wonky. big_smile
