I have a Early 2005 Dual 2GHz CPU model, maxed RAM to 4GB, upgraded to an SSD and a 500GB HDD, and just installed my new GeForce 6800 ULTRA 256MB model. I was looking to get the Bluetooth card to install so I can put my Apple bluetooth keyboard and Magic Trackpad to use. Will both of those work on this machine?

Great! I know I need the antenna that plugs into the back, but what exact model BT card do I need? There seem to be several ones. I have an Early 2005 model with dual 2.0GHz G5s.

I'm not sure what part that is.

But if it proves difficult to find, Belkin makes a couple models of USB BT adapters. They are excellent and gave my old Quicksilver Bluetooth capability,

In fact, I am still using the adapter with my G5 Quad as there seems to be some sort of interference that makes the stock BT lad a bit.

I remember seeing a ~$11 (on sale I believe) Wifi/BT adapter on here but I cannot seem to find it again.
