Amiga 1200 tower with Mediator

I am thinking of making my 1200 a tower and adding mediator. So I have a Radeon 9520 256MB. Other than being able to use the RAM on the Radeon what's the advantage of the Radeon or any VGA card if all the Amiga modes still requires me to connect my monitor to the Video port on my 1200?

Workbench and all OS friendly software will be very nice to use with an RTG card. I agree, with a PCI graphics card, swapping between native and RTG screens is not that smooth. Perhaps a Ratte switch could help to swap between the outputs.
