HI, I have a G5 and I'm trying to install a new AGP card (ATI 9800 pro) and I get the next resolution


I have Tiger OS X updated and the system profiler have detected the card
What might be going???

Serial number of mi G5 is G85345SWRU4

Woah that picture looks bad, does the result save when you take a screenshot? I don't really know how it goes with Mac , but that would indicate a software issue, but if its only visible on the monitor, gpu is probably faulty and needs rma.

GPU is faulty and in need of RMA? That's a 9 year old card on a $2000 Macintosh discontinued 6 years ago. Time to go to the Apple store and spend $3000 on a rebranded PC.
