    IIRC the Dual 2.5 GHz G5 uses AGP 8x for video...

    Two cards spring onto mind:
    - nVidia GeForce 6800 Ultra
    - ATi Radeon X800 XT Mac edition

    ATI Radeon X800XT Mac Edition - hard to find since it's discontinued.
    ATI Radeon X850XT OEM Mac card - hard to find because it's an OEM card.
    Geforce 6800 Ultra or GT OEM Mac card - also hard to find since it's OEM.

    By the way the ATI Radeon cards mentioned above offer only one dual-link DVI port whereas the Geforce cards offer two dual-link DVI ports.
