Hi,

I just got an old G5 2Ghz Powerpc. This is my first mac, and don't know too much about it. The video card burned out, and I want to know what is the best video card that is compatible with this machine. It looks like PCI-X slots, but maybe one of you mac guru's will know better. The card is ATI radeon 9800.

Thnx

Thank you, I just called them and they have nothing in stock and don't know if I can use something else than the ATI Radeon 9800 that's in there now.

I might end up buying the same card and hope it will run smooth with the latest games.
