Hi
I've just got the last of the g5 powermacs, a 2.5 quad. What's a good uncompressed video capture card for this computer. I use FCP
cheers

A Kona 3 is a very good card for that Mac.

That would be the Kona 3X...cause that machine has PCI-X slots. Also Kona LH...not the LHe or LHi, those are PCIe only. And there are Decklink models but not sure which. That is an old machine and finding these NEW will be a challenge.

I have an original Blackmagic Card and a BlackMagic SP if you are doing SD only.

I think the System Profiler in the Apple Menu will tell you. Also, you might want to look for an app called Mac Tracker. It's a database of every Mac ever built and is very useful in figuring out what kind of cards, RAM etc are compatible with each Mac.
