The question is more, how muc

The question is more, how much are you willing to risk at flashing a PC video card? You have many to choose from, but some have a better success rate than others. Go here:
Otherwise, there's always a couple of guys on eBay selling cards they've flashed and give detailed descriptions of their capabilities.

Ive bought several

Radeon 8500's on ebay. Im sure they are flashed, but Ive never had problems with them. I can get you the seller if you want. I agonized a bit over whether or not to purchase them, your AGP options are severely limited and dropping by the minute. Flashed 7000, 8500 and mac version 9000 are overpriced *if* you can even find them.

I just went through my old paypal, here is a link to his current items on ebay. I wouldnt hesitate to recommend him. I can vouch for his products, Ive bought 3 radeon cards from him and all have worked perfectly:

Isn't that the guy who steals

Isn't that the guy who steals ROMs from the strangedogs/former strangedogs people and sells them as his own?
There are at least a few threads about him on the old strangedogs forum.

get a reflashed Radeon 9800. These babies are killer for everything you can do on the G4.
