    Hi,

    as far as I know, the Geforce 7900GS AGP will not run in a G5 (lack of ROM's).
    I have a dual 1.8 G5.

    I've got a used gfx-card, 512MB, dual-DVI (Gainward).

    Is there a chance to "downgrade" it to a 7800GS (for it, it seems there are ROM's available)?

    Thanks in advance,
    yassi

    I don't know whether the hardware is remotely similar on those two cards, but if you are able to back up the original ROM it couldn't hurt to try.
