G3 B&W Dual Video Cards?

Can a B&W G3 Support 2 PCI videocards?
I want to run 2 LDC monitors on my B&W G3.
Actually a G4 500... Running Mac OS X 10.4

Yes.

I have two OEM Radeon 7000s in mine. Since "Tiger" I've gotten some strange screen corruption during the earliest stage of boot, but they work fine once the machine is up.

one thing is though, one PCI

one thing is though, one PCI slot is 66mhz and the others are 33mhz...

Hmm...

You could just get a dual monitor capable video card.

You would have to find a card

You would have to find a card that faces backwards. The 33MHz slots face a different direction than the 66MHz one used for the video card. I have used an old card out of a biege G3 that worked in there. It would probably be easier to use a card that supports 2 displays rather than attempting to use 2 different cards.
