    PCI USB 2.0 card
    I recently switched to a MAC and need extra USB ports. Are there any pci based usb port expansion cards for a Powermac G5?

    Yes. check www.xlr8yourmac.com. They have a news thread which discusses the Panther bug where USB 2 cards broke the sleep function. I think its been fixed in Tiger. I have a Siig combo USB 2.0/fw800 in my powermac G4. Sleep won't work properly, but I haven't installed Tiger yet.

    Maybe someone else in the forum has succesfully gotten a USB2 card working in tiger...

    Any particular reason why you're not using a powered hub instead?
