Amadeus Digidesign
Interface card for Windows PCs to connect an Protools 442 Interface
with my Windows PC. This card is compatible to the Nubus Version but
for PC and can be connected to 442 and 888 Inferfaces.

The Amadeus card is basically a Disk I/O PCI card without the SCSI functionality.

This is an 8 channel card and was made for use in Avid systems.
It was never supported by Pro Tools software.

snow leopard was released:
10.6   Snow Leopard   August 28, 2009

the 300 series wasnt as popular as teh 200/400 series.. and kind of skipped over it..
the 400 series was known as FERMI cards

for simplicity + compatibility the higher end 200 series cards aer probably the best bet
for snow leopard hackintoshes

Nvidia GT (295, 285, 280, 275, 260, 250)

search for 200 series GEforce Cards on ebay

GPU:
- Intel Graphics GMA X3100, GMA950 and GMA900 is supported, the rest are not.

- nvidia vga cards from NV40 core to fermi series (only some of the fermi cards work on 10.6.3 and they need additional drivers/patches) are supported on 10.6.3 (NV40, NV41, NV42, NV43, NV44, G70, G71, G72, G73, G84, G86, G92, G94, G96, G98, C79, GT200, GT215, GT216, GT218, GF100, GF104, GF106, GF108, GF110, GF114, GF116, GF119).
This does not mean that all of them will work of course, but most of them will work with iATKOS S3.
Some of them will work with issues and some of them may not even work. You will have to try and see it yourself.
Simply, nvidia 6xxx/ 7xxx / 8xxx / 9xxx / 1xx / 2xx / 3xx and some of the fermi 4xx cards are supported.

- ATI HD 7xxx/6xxx/5xxx are not supported. Some of the HD 4xxx cards work with modified drivers and the users will have to take the additional steps to use such cards after installation.

Mac OS X

Mac OS X 10.4 supports the GMA 950, since it was used in previous revisions of the MacBook, MacMini, and 17-inch iMacs.[33] It has been used in all Intel-based Mac minis (until the Mac Mini released on March 3, 2009).[34] Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard contains drivers for the GMA X3100, which were used in a recent revision of the MacBook range.[35]

Late-release versions of Mac OS X 10.4 also support the GMA 900 due to its use in the Apple Developer Transition Kit, which was used in the PowerPC-to-Intel transition. However, special modifications to the kext file must be made to enable Core Image and Quartz Extreme.

Although the new MacBook line no longer uses the X3100, Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard) ships with drivers supporting it that require no modifications to the kext file. Mac OS X 10.6 (Snow Leopard), which includes a new 64-bit kernel in addition to the 32-bit one, does not include 64-bit X3100 drivers.[citation needed] This means that although the MacBooks with the X3100 have 64-bit capable processors and EFI, Mac OS X must load the 32-bit kernel to support the 32-bit X3100 drivers.[citation needed] November 9's 10.6.2 update ships with 64-bit X3100 drivers.[citation needed]

Apple removed the 64-bit GMA X3100 drivers later, and thus affected Macs were forced back to the 32-bit kernel despite being 64-bit clean in terms of hardware and firmware. No 64-bit drivers were offered in OS X Lion. Subsequently, OS X Mountain Lion dropped 32-bit kernel booting. The combination of these two changes in graphics driver code resulted in many Mac revisions being unable to upgrade to Mountain Lion, as their GPUs cannot be replaced.

For a while MacBook and MacBook Pro notebooks instead shipped with a far more powerful[36] NVIDIA GeForce 9400M,[37] and the 15" and 17" MacBook Pro notebooks shipped with an additional GeForce 9600GT supporting hybrid power to switch between GPUs. The NVIDIA GeForce 9400M chipset implemented in Apple MacBooks did not support composite or S-video output.[38]
