I have a Dual 2.0 Ghz G5 Power Mac with the standard Nvidia 5200 graphics card. I mainly do graphics work with Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, some Dreamweaver and Flash, and others alike. I do not game at all. Would an upgrade to this card (http://shop4.outpost.com/product/3799426) be worth it? I don't think that card from Fry's is the sameone that is available on Apple's site for an upgrade, but it does say that it is for the Mac. Would there be any noticable and worthwhile difference in performance if I upgrade to a better graphics card?

Thanks!

I would wait for the Radeon X800...
