    Hi there guys. I gave a friend of mine one of my old macs a while ago. It's a dual 2 GHz powermac g5 with 4 gigs of ram. It had a geforce 6800 ultra in it, but the card decided to go bonkers a year ago. Visual artifacts, freezes the whole computer and stuff like that. I had to put back the fx5200 it came with when i bought it. It works fine with that, but now my buddy wants to do some gaming on it. I have around here a gigabyte radeon 9600pro from an old pc that i want to flash in order to use it in the g5. I've flashed a few videocards before, mainly 9800s. But i can't find the old repository where i got the rom files back then. Can anyone give me a link or something with rom files so i can get this card to work? I know there was a huge difference between the fx5200 and the radeon 9800. Can anyone give me an opinion about the difference between the fx5200 and their radeon 9600? Thank you in advance. Best wishes from Romania.
