    search for it. i remember installing Final Cut HD on my Power Mac G5 back in 2005 and it gave the same error. You're suppose to edit one of the documents within the Final Cut files for the program to read/use PCI GPU instead of AGP GPU.

    "In Finder go to the Final Cut application, right click and choose "Show Package Contents" From there find the file "Info.plist". Open it in Text Edit (or Property List Editor if you have Developer tools installed. Find the string that says AGP, and change AGP to PCI. "

    Found this in another thread. Worked for me.
