    I have an older ATI Readeon X800 XT Mac Edition card in my Power Mac G5. it's AGP and I'd like to upgrade it to something more powerful. Although I'm having a hard time finding anything AGP for the MAC. Are AGP cards for the Mac very limited? Or can I assume most AGP cards for a PC will work in my G5 assuming that there are drivers for them?

    Can anybody suggested a good newer AGP card?

    Your best bet is to upgrade your machine. AFAIK, the X800 is the best card you can get for your G5 - you could try finding a X850 to flash, but you'd not get much of a bump for all that work.

    You can always check here - this used to be the place to go for flashing help - dunno if they're still active. http://www.strangedogs.com/
