I have a new Mac Pro Intel G5. Can anyone recommend a good PCI Express 2.0 expansion card (for adding USB ports)?

I went to BestBuy and all they have are PCI (not compatible). Belkin's web site has what look like the proper PCI Express 2.0 cards, but the system specs say Windows only.

If anyone has any pointers, I'd appreciate it.

Small Tree is the company that provides Intel Pro1000 and 10GbE Network adapters to the Mac OSX market.

We have a card that is PCI X based for your G5...
The card you want is as follows;

If you have a G5 with Dual Ethernet ports, you do have a PCI Express version and would be a PEG1 instead of a PXG1D.

****If your Mac G5 only has one Ethernet port in the back, it's going to be a PCI X Version.
