View Full Version : Need New Graphics card for G5

12 December 2003, 07:16 PM
I'm in the market for a new graphics card for my powermac G5 1.8, i currently use the FX 5200. I searched the fourms to see what other people are using and suggest but I could never find a clear answer. I mainly use Maya and Lightwave, and can't spend more than $500 (Would the GeForce FX 5900 work?, from the looks of it that may be the best choice). I also don't know where to buy the graphic cards, especially for a mac, so if anyone knows at least that it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

The 5900 is not available for the Mac.

You're best bets:

Radeon 9600 Pro
Radeon 9800 Pro

You may also be able to score a 9700 Pro used on ebay.

I know you can get the Ti4600 upgrade kid off of the Apple site...otherwise look at ebay or MacMall.
