I'm looking to upgrade my Dual 2.7 G5's graphics card which currently has a ATI Radeon 9650 in it.

I came across this one and wonder if anyone has any experience with it. I mainly want a better card for gaming, thanks for any help..

Heres a link to it

It won't work - the best card for your machine, which uses AGP, is the Radeon X800XT Mac Edition. They're rather expensive...

I second the request for user experiences. Anybody here have this upgrade? What do you think of it? I have a 6600 LE in my PCIe G5 and I'm wondering what kind of performance I can get in World of Warcraft with the upgrade...
