Just wanting to know for a friend if the stock 8x AGP card from my G5 Powermac would work in a G4 Cube? I didn't think it would but does anyone know for sure? Thanks.

Think I may have answered my own question. http://lowendmac.com/video/agp/geforce-5200.html

The GeForce FX 5200 is an AGP 8x card compatible with AGP 2x, 4x, and 8x slots. It's short enough and runs cool enough to work in the Power Mac G4 Cube (http://lowendmac.com/ppc/power-macintosh-g4-cube.html), and it is the oldest, least powerful card with full Core Image and Core Animation support. It was the standard video card for the Power Mac G5/1.6 GHz single and 1.8 GHz dual (2003) (http://lowendmac.com/ppc/power-macintosh-g5-2003.html), 1.8 GHz single, (http://lowendmac.com/ppc/power-macintosh-g5-single.html) and 1.8 GHz and 2.0 GHz dual (2004) (http://lowendmac.com/ppc/power-macintosh-g5-2004.html). It will work with all AGP Power Macs (http://lowendmac.com/video/agp/geforce-5200.html#)
