    Hi all,

    I was just looking at graphics cards, and I'm not sure (and haven't found anything) about this, but does a PowerMac G5 made in June 2004 (a dual 2.5GHz one) have AGP or PCIe graphics?

    Thanks, Alex

    AGP. Only the late 2005 models have PCIe.

    AGP.

    The only ones that use PCIe are the late '05s-the dual core 2.0, dual core 2.3, and quad 2.5.

    Another way to tell if the G5 panel is one big square with the G5 in the middle(PCIe) and if there are 2 halves it is an AGP
