    Not a good idea. Although they look the same, there's a couple differences in some of the Mac cards. The main one being that some of them actually supply power through the card to power the screen (mainly for DVI LCD screens). Also, the DVI connector is slightly different to incorporate this.

    Mixing MAC and PC video cards is most definitely not recommended for this reason.

    The old card he is using would just have a VGA connector. But the Mac and PC cards have different firmware. You can't just move them between computers.
