Will this card work in my late 2003 dual 2.0 g5. the pins that are there match but my current card has a set of pins this one doesn't.

more specifically this card came out of a pc. I see there are drivers for both pc and mac online but was a different card made for mac than pc or was one card released with the option of two different drivers?

As far as I understand it, you need to flash the ROM on the card if it is even possible.

Also consider changing your thread title to something more descriptive to get the proper audience.
