    I have a sawtooth with a 2X AGP slot and I want to put this card in it:

    Specs:
    -ATI Radeon 9600
    -128MB DDR
    -Dual DVI ports
    -8x AGP

    If it wont work straight up then what type of modding will I have to do or will modding not do the trick?

    G5 Cards will not work either because of the pin configuration (they're usually agp pro). You can flash a PC card which isn't reliable, I tried and had no luck with several cards. Check out Strangedogs.com. Or track down an older nvidia card, Ati 9000, 9200 or 9800 (2x/4x) for mac. Unfortunately only the 9800 has core image compatibility.

    I deem the G4 sawtooth as not a gaming machine unless you are playing games from pre-2002. Or you don't mind slow FPS, which I couldn't tolerate.
