    It's hard to find a ROM that is compatible with the x1300 cards. I've flashed some nVidia cards in the past for my G4 and G5 systems, but figured I should ask if anyone has had any luck with this particular card in their DC G5.

    I have a spare x1300 256MB card sitting here so I figured it's worth a shot to replace the 128MB 6600LE!

    I dont think there was ever a ROM for the x1300. There is one floating around for the x1900 if you can get your hands on one of those

    To my knowledge, the only officially compatible X1300 was limited to the early Mac Pros and Xserves. That being said, the Hackintosh community uses them but that does little for you as they do not have a firmware that works with OpenFirmware.
