I'm looking for some expert advice here. Am a newbie and hope the question isn't out of place or out of line. Picked up an Ati radeon 9000 PC ATI RV 250 chipset. Got a hold of couple of Mac 9000 roms. A 113-99703-112 Radeon 9000 Pro Mac Edition and a newer version 113-99703-127. Installed card into PC Agp slot and started on PCI card with appropriate Ati flashrom and such. Ran Flashrom -i and showed atmel M2510ST/c for chip. I think this is the 128K larger chip. Backed up original bin and flashed with older rom successfully. But when installed to mac shows up as 16 MB VRam and will only show video in 256 colors and not very good at that. In 9.22, 10.28 and 10.34. Have all the latest drivers installed. Anyone have any success with this card. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Haven't flash a radeon 9000 myself. I'd check the forums at www.cubeowner.com they have re done their forums and now have an entire section for graphics card flashing. It's by far the best resource I've found for mac flashing and unlike xlr8yourmac you can still register and post on the forums.
