Graphics upgrades for a PM G5 w/ AGP?

I have an ATI X850; will there be any possibility of upgrading my video card in the future? Apple already only sells the Nvidia 6600, which is worse IIRC. I'm sure PC AGP cards are still manufactured, but obviously the PM cannot use them; what can I do, going forward?

There's nothing you can do about it but sell your machine and buy one with PCIe if you want to be current. However, ATI usually sells the newest cards (like the X1900XT, etc...) as an upgrade for older machines at a small price premium over PC cards.

There really aren't that many options for PCIe unless you want to put down some cash for a better graphics card...I wish they could just come up with some Mac supported cards and sell them normally over having to buy them flashed and pay twice the price...
