G'day and welcome to the forums.

Well if you do not spend the $100 or more you will not have a graphics card pure and simple and PC cards will not work in the Mac Pro. Flashing PC cards is very much a hit and miss affair, can kill the card and maybe do serious harm to the Mac Pro. Maybe this is what has happened and personally would avoid a machine where the card has been burnt out and dumped and comes without one, so I trust you got it very, very cheap.

Look for a nVidia GeForce 8800GT. They are the best value or your buck and about $180 brand new. Your Mac Pro is still worth more than $1,200.00 so why take the risk?
