I acquired two original imacs today (a '99 and a '00). the newer has better specs, except i could find much info on the the differences between the two rage cards in them.

Do you know which is better? Rage 128 VR (16mb) vs. the Rage 128 Pro (8mb). I found out on wiki that the pro has better rendering but less memory im just not sure which would be better as I am planning on keeping one for nostalgia. Thanks yall

Keep them both, they seem rare, especially if in working order.
Or gut them and put in newer kit..
Could be a fun project when people come round and u have an i5 system in an 17 inch Imac..
