Can somebody please tell me the model number of the Airport Exteme wifi+Bluetooth Card for Power Mac G5 Late 2005?

Want to get one cheap somewhere but there are so many I'm afraid ill mistakenly get the AGP one or one of the laptops ones!

Does an Airport card from a PowerMac G5 dual 1.8 from 2004 work in a PowerMac G5 Late 2005 Dual Core 2.3?

Are there any cheap Pci-e cards that enable Wifi on this Mac?

No. You need an EDR card.

I went this route instead:

It works great. You need to give up a USB port obviously and you would need a similar solution for Bluetooth.

Will this work woth kismac on a powerbook?
I need a wireless card because... Well, I thought the airport traces were MSB_PLL cpu clock control pins, and... Desoldered them.
When I used my old USB wifi card, it worked great, and then someone decided it was a powerbook "handle"; they picked up the powerbook by the wifi card and broke it in half.
