    Hi
    I've got a late 2005 model PowerMac G5 Dual @GHz
    It's currently have stock GeForce 6600 PCI-e card on it.
    I've found a ATI HD2600 card going fairly cheap, so wondering if that can work on my G5?
    any help or suggestions?

    cheers

    A flashed Radeon X1900 is the best you're going to be able to get for a Power MAC G5 PCI-Express if you're on a budget.

    Anything more recent is Intel only.

    The ATI x1900 is a good card, but I use an nVidia Quadro FX 4500 in my Quad and it really works. It is an expensive card, but it is worth it.
