Currently I have a Dual Core G5 2.0

I would greatly appreciate any reasonably priced PCI Express video card links. Everything that I found is about $250 or more!

Thanks!:)

Depends on what you consider reasonable. http://eshop.macsales.com/shop/video/hardware/

The fastest of those would be the 7800GT. You could probably flash a PC-side 7800GT PCI-E card for the mac, which would be substantially cheaper. As in, about $190 vs. $280.

this card will not work in a Mac, running OS X.

I suggest you do a lot of homework before purchasing a 'Mac' Video card for your machine, there are a MESS of variables.

The video card must specifically say that it is for the G5 machines. Most PCI-E cards will not work.

I'd suggest the X1900, it can be found for under $250.
