    You can not put PC graphic cards in a Mac and expect it to work, especially not in a PPC Mac.

    a cheap mac pci card from ebay should do for recovery unless you have a pcie g5.

    The 8800 Mac card only works in Intel Macs.

    The model of the G5 will determine the card you should buy. What G5 do you have?
