If it helps, it's clear that the powermac isn't keen on my CRT
monitors, despite trying on both a Geforce 2 and a Geforce Ti 4600 and
in OS X/9.
The Geforce 2 starts in 640x480 but can be modified to use a higher
resolution in OS X/9. The Ti4600 doesn't like the CRT monitors at all
(TFT via DVI-D is ok). Despite the fact the monitors are capable of
2048x1536, it's refusing to budge off 640x480. Other computers are
perfectly fine, so the mac is obviously being a bit special..
