Sorry for asking such a newb question but there is a guy selling a pcie card that I would like to purchase. He said it came out of a quad 2.5 g5 but I thought that the g5s were pcix. any help would be great.

The early G5s were PCI-X, the later were PCI-e (or PCI-Express). Basically if it was single or 2Xsingle processor, it was PCI-X, if it was dual core or 2Xdual core, it was PCIe.

Download Mactracker (from macupdate.com, etc) and use it to see what the hardware is on any Mac or model. I have a late 2005 model Power Mac G5, Dual Core 2.0GHz, and it has PCIe slots, so I suspect that quad core model does too. But check Mactracker to make sure.

The quad was the top of the line model of the last G5 Power Mac and yes, it had PCIe.
