    i'm not sure if the 9600 will run the 30", but this will. i'm pretty sure it's the best upgrade out for the g5's.

    actually, it says here that the 9600 should power a 30" ACD, so you may not need to switch. also, you'd need a G5 w/ PCIe to run the x1900.

    i dont have the pro version though :s

    i was hoping there was a cheaper option as once you add on the cost of the screen this is a very expensive upgrade
