Upgrading Mac for 3-D graphics

My kids have a game that requires RagePro or better 3-D graphics.  It runs fine on my PowerBook (FireWire) but not on their 7600/132 which has a G3 XLR8 upgrade.  The PCI slots are all available.  Most of the graphic accelerators I have seen require AGP port which I of course do not have.  Is it possible to upgrade this machine for this?  What do I need?

Sure, just grab a card that doesnt require AGP. ATI makes them and so does nVidia. Anything you buy now will meet the Rage Pro or better requirement. The Radeon 7000 would more than suit your needs.

Picked up an ATI Rage Pro 128 for Christmas and it works great.  Thanks.
