Im thinking of upgrading my video card to get a better gaming experiance. Right now I have a Dual 2.7GHz G5 with 3.5GB Ram and the ATI Radeon 9650 card. I mainly play World of Warcraft. I'm debating on the GeForce 7800 GTX 256MB DDR3 PCI Express Video Card. Any comments suggestions?

It won't work. You need to pay twice as much for the slower Mac 7800 GT.

Are you refering to this card? That's a card for x86 PCs (although the price is about $200 too high) and it won't even fit in the AGP slot in your dual 2.7 (something I missed the first time I read this thread).

Look into the 9800 Pro, 6800 GT, 6800 Ultra, X800 XT or X850 XT in AGP if you'd like to upgrade.
