Welcome to Discussions!
The Geforce GT 120 will not work in a G5.
The G5 uses Open Firmware, and all Intel macs use EFI.
No Intel Mac graphics card will work in a G5.
Your graphics options are:
GeForce 6600 LE
GeForce 7800 GT
Radeon X1900 G5 Edition

Currently Being ModeratedDec 26, 2009 12:37 PM (in response to pepema3)I'm using a NVIDIA GeForce 6800 Ultra DDL in my Power Mac G5 1,6 GHz monoprocessor.
I found this Apple packaged card, last year, thanks to my local store.
It works fine with my LCD via DVI and my CRT via VGA (with adapter), and I'm pretty sure it will work on a 2005 model.
I'm wondering what new generation graphic card would work in my machine and whether it would even make sense to upgrade considering the other somewhat outdated components in the 2003 desktop.
thanks for reading me. cheers.
