    lol! The Radeon 9600 w/256mb. Then it goes on to say "The Radeon 9600 PRO PC & Mac Edition provides the most up-to-date display support, powering the market’s latest". :laugh:

    not only that - check the price.

    theyve been trading since 1984. open'd up another 2 or 3 branches within spitting distance of each other then at some point lost their map of LOLREALITY.

    Im gonna print the page of, take it to them & see if they will sell it to me if i pretend that i have no I.T savvy whatsoever. I'l say im looking for some butt raping graphics cards for a few machines my mates building

    I did notice at the bottom of the webpage it states, "Original design and concept © 1984 - 2008 Micro Anvika Ltd."

    The internet wasn't open to commercial interests until 1988. Is that what you mean?:confused:

    Let me put it this way - a Sapphire HD3850 512MB DDR3 on AGP is a lot easier & cheaper to get. as for the MAC thing - I suppose they dumped AGP support a LOOOONNG TIME ago. so its Hello PCI-E Nvidia 8600's for them

    Haha I go what you were pointing out once I read the description and saw the price. I'm from the U.S. and I know that's a RIDICULOUS price for that. My jaw hit the desk I was in such shock.

    What a bunch of clowns LOL:roll:

    Believe it or noy, that price isn't too bad for the Mac edition 9600Pro. They can charge outragous prices because a lot of times that is the only option for a lot of people with older Mac computers.

    The Mac edition hardware from back when Mac specific hardware was required, is usually insanely priced.

    Nope, just really clueless resellers. I'm pretty sure standard PC video cards work on Macs now as long as one of Apple's machines have the same card, ie there is a kext file for that particular gpu.
