    G5 ATI Radeon 9600 video card
    I need to replace my video card for ATY, RV251, 128 MB PN 102A5850520. Are there
    any out there? I have a Powermac G5 bought July 2005.

    Thanks, Vicki

    Thread moved to more appropriate sub-forum (Apple Desktops).

    Thank you
    Nick,

    Do you know how close the numbers appearing in the upper right hand
    corner of the card have to match?

    My # is 109-A58503-20. I have seen cards on e-bay with all numbers the
    same except for the last 2?

    I have horizontal lines all over my screen which are getting worse. I have been
    told that it is the video card. I already check and changed connections.

    As far as I know...as long as it's a Radeon 9600 that came from another Powermac G5...it should work in your computer.

    FYI...do not buy a Radeon 9600 card if it's the Windows PC version...it won't work.

    Before lashing out on another card Vicki, remove the current card, give the contacts a good wipe over, and reseat the card very firmly. Dust and loose cards often give the same diagnosis as a failed card.
    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!
