    Hey guys,

    I'm looking for a new video card for my G5. All the Mac edition cards seem extremely overpriced, and I was reading up and some people said that PC video cards could work with Macs, so I looked for some regular ones.

    These are ones that I'm looking at (right now I just have a Radeon 9600 Pro 64MB card):

    So does anyone know if these will work for Mac? Or are there any other recommendations?

    Thanks,
    Don

    PC cards don't work. The best card that you can get is the PowerMac G5 version of the Radeon X1900.

    And depending on your model, THAT might not even work.

    Dang it, that's annoying… guess it's back to looking for a Mac card on eBay. :(
