Congratulations.I've always wanted to be smart, handsome and modest. But, I guess I'll have to be satisfied with two out of three . . .

So you are going to be able to get a non apple video card to work? Or by flash did you mean you were going to flash it to the necessary specifications so that it would work on the G5?

Flash a non-apple graphics card to be used. Don't really know what I'm going to use it for. I can figure something out though.[Main Laptop/Computer] [April 2006] 17" MacBook Pro | 2.33GHz C2D | 4GB DDR2 RAM | 120GB Intel 320 SSD | Lion 10.7.5
