I'm looking for one of the following Mediator solutions..
I would prefer the "MK-II" version but the first ("MK-I"?) is also considered.

Mediator PCI 4000D: http://www.elbox.com/products/mediator_pci_4000d.html
Mediator PCI 4000Di: http://www.elbox.com/products/mediator_pci_4000di.html

Also a matching Radeon 92xx could be interesting...

Open for offers... :)

I've thought it over and I probably only want a Radeon 92xx (no Voodoo cards) so I edited my first post.
No other cards interested as I already have a Deneb USB and plenty of old PCI networkcards :)

So, only Mediator or Mediator+Radeon92xx ;)

Hi DrBrain. :)

Without crapping your wanted thread to bits, can I ask why you favour the Radeon option over Voodoo?

The latter is supported much more. ;)

PS. You will need a 5v Radeon to work with Mediator or hack the Mediator to run 3.3v cards (http://www.amibay.com/showthread.php?t=13931) :blink:

Well... the only negative thing I can see is that the Radeon has no 3D support in OS3.9.
Other than that it's only positive... DVI, more Memory, better support(3d/composition) in OS4.1 Classic.

Is there something else I should know of? :unsure:

Thanks! :)

None that I know of m8, but so far as better 3D support goes under OS4.1 Classic, I wouldn't know as it isn't released yet. Adding to this fact, if the 4.1 release of OS4 Classic is as good as they are favouring, it has an awful long way to go to be anywhere near as good as an 060 running 3D under OS3.9. I'm not referring to specific PPC written games either. ;)

Personally, I've never played with Radeon's on Mediators, but Voodoo 3000 & 5500 are very good & after reading about lots of Radeon issues on Mediator, I hope you have better luck than most. I'm sure there are several AmiBay members more than eager to help you become successful. :thumbsup:

Good luck however this turns out for you.

This thread can be marked as "Found" and closed as I've bought a Mediator 4000Di (and a Voodoo3 and SB128 ) from FLOPS here on AmiBay..
