I've currently a Geforce2MX with 32MB of memory in my G4 digital audio. I've also some pc videocards lying around:
- Geforce5200FX with 128MB of memory
- Geforce5700 with 128MB of memory
- Geforce6800GT with 256MB of memory
Is it possible to put one of those cards out of the pc-world into my mac, and if the answer is yes, how should I do this ? Does anyone here has experience doing this ?

Yes. But you need to flash the cards over to Mac. A little digging through google will probably turn up some flash files. Once you flash them, you should just be able to slap them in the G4.
