    I don't have anything for sale, but if you are looking for cheap and well working I'd recommend a AGP Radeon 9600 Pro (or 9600XT) 128 MB VRAM (Mac original). You will find plenty of those on Ebay.

    I would second that.
    They are your most affordable choices.
    The 9800Pro and 9800XT are also available, but usually command higher prices.

    Lets see if I get those ebay numbers right......

    290925989859
    170814637183
    141294870437

    And some more searching for "Radeon 9600 G5"

    Got a spare myself (128MB) ripped out an actual G5, not sure what shipping form Germany to Greece would cost so I'll just ask 35Euro + P&P.

    edit:
    Just checked, 10.90Euro insured with DHL

    Sure, but I am in the US and Yasu is in Sweden.

    One good US offer:

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/Apple-630-7231-PowerMac-G5-ATI-Radeon-9600-128MB-AGP-Dual-DVI-631-0119-/360929861131?pt=PCC_Video_TV_Cards&hash=item5409189e0b#shpCntId

    An Apple 128MB 9600XT for $16.19 with Priority Shipping to Greece for $29.95.

    If you would like it, I can send you n Apple 64MB 9600 for free if you pay the shipping (which, if I use First Class Mail, should be cheaper than the above).

    Yes, but you are closer and shipping out of here is damned high.
    Besides, everything is cheaper over here.
    Its just a factor of having such a big market.

    Personally, the only reason I offered the 64mb card, is I wanted at least a 128mb card and bought this from a listing w/o the vram size listed.

    This one seems quite good:

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/Apple-G5-AGP-ATI-Radeon-9600-XT-128MB-Mac-version-free-shipping-/290925989859?pt=DE_Elektronik_Computer_Computer_Graphikkarten&hash=item43bc8a4fe3

    It's a good price considering that shipping is free within the EU. Ask the seller if it's a real mac card and not a flashed one just to make sure. If it's a real mac card, go for it.

    @Yasu

    - genuine Mac card (blue PCB, ADC + extra ADC powerconnector)
    - more expensive than what has allready been offered by Jim and myself

    As pointed out by Kronos, not the best buy.

    Sure, but no harm having alternatives.
