Sounds like you have one of the earliest G5 models, so any card built for a AGP 8X Pro graphics slot should work. Something like a ATI Radeon X800 XT (http://ati.amd.com/products/radeonx800/radeonX800xtme/index.html) would be a good option.

I would go for a Nvidia card...Once in my life I bought a ATI (x800 xt) and it died after one week.
