    Hey guys,

    I have an early 2005 Powermac G5 and I want to upgrade my video card from the ATI Radeon 9650. Unfortunately I do not have a PCI Express slot in my G5 and my avenues are standard AGP, PCI or PCI-X.

    Can anyone please advise what they think is the best option for me to take to get some life out of my beast.

    And by the way, I have the 30-inch apple display of which I run the full resolution of 2560x1600.

    Cheers!!!!
