I'd say snap it up ASAP. Probably worth alot more than that, even if it is G5 only.

Have not looked, but would guess it won't work in a G4, at least not without modification. Most AGP cards are G4 or G5, not both.....likely differneces in 4X AGP vs. 8X.

If you need detailed info on video, or maybe the best deal and most options for your G4, check out the forums at strangedogs.com. Bunch of video gurus who modify high end PC cards to run in Macs.....so they know pretty much everything there is to know about Mac video.
