    Which version of ubuntu for my powermac?

    Hello! This is my first post on these forums!
    Has anyone had any experience with installing Ubuntu on a PowerMac Quad G5? Also, will I have trouble getting drivers for my graphics card, an Nvidia Quadro FX 4500?

    Well then I would like to welcome you to the Ubuntu forums, Chris!

    Here is a link to a .iso image for your Mac. You should install the .iso image named "Mac (PowerPC) and IBM-PPC (POWER5) desktop CD".

    http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/releases/12.04/release/

    I believe the installation process will download the correct driver for your graphics card.

    Cheers!
