As far as I get from the forefront site, they are implied in 2D drivers only. But who is doing the 3D since warp team is fully working on OS4 ?

call me crazy or call it overkill..but i whould get a radeon 9700 ;

Well, you asked for it.... "you're crazy"  :crazy:  or enjoy spending money.

While the 9700 is fantastic hardware, you may find that the 800MHz G4 will not have the horsepower to scale  this card to it's full potential. Let's also not forget the fact that OS4.0 will most likely have no 3D support for the 9700.

A more affordable 7500LE or 8500LE will do the job nicely.
