My Dual 2Ghz G5 (original model), has PCI-X slots, which means I 
can't use some PCI cards (which I think includes all Mac PCI cards I 
own).  In the PC world, PCI-X slots are reserved for servers, and 
everything seems to be moving to PC-Express slots.

The only PCI card this really bothers me about though is my Darla24 
sound card, I'll admit I should replace it, but instead, I'm simply 
trying to find time to move it from my PowerMac 8500/180 to my G4/450 
AGP.  The G4 wouldn't support the card when I got the card as G4's 
were to new, but it should hopefully work now.
