I have a 1.6GHz G5 (Old...I know but its what I've got). I need a new graphics Card. I found that I need NVIDIA GeForce FX 5200 Ultra, but the only items I can find state that they are only compatible with Windows systems. Will this work? or is there another Graphics Card that I can use?

Any help on this will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

You basically need to find the Macintosh version of this card. I bet I could find one on e-Bay if I looked...well I did look here's what I found:

NVIDIA GEFORCE FX 5200 DVI ADC FOR POWER MAC G5

I'm sure there are more available as well. It may not be the cheapest...but they are available.

Hope this helps,
