    No it won't, you need a Mac specific graphics card.

    The other thing of course is that the G5 DP 1.8 has an AGP graphics card, not a PCI-e card. A PCI-e card won't fit or work in an AGP slot.

    Your options for a G5 DP 1.8 is a Radeon X800 Mac Edition (pretty much discontinued by ATI), or one of the OEM cards - Geforce 6800 Ultra (or GT) Mac version or X850XT Mac version.
