    Ok this is a noob question (no judgement please :) )

    Will a PCI card fit in a PCIe slot in my PowerMac G5 dual core?

    Do you of any PCIe card that would expand USB and firewire ports for the G5?

    Not off the top of my head. I'd lean more towards getting USB hubs and daisy-chaining Firewire devices.

    If you don't mind buying them from Hong Kong, you can find them on ebay for around $25. FW800 PCI-e cards are around $50.
