Change the graphic card on G5

I got ATI Radeon 9600 64MB on my G5, but I found on ebay the radeon 9800 pro 128MB. The problem is, I don't know how to install the new graphic card and get the old one out of the computer. I don't want to mess it up and break something.

Does any of you know how to change the graphic card of a powermacg5?

Unfortunately, you are not going to be able to replace the Graphics card on this machine.
The Graphics card is part of the logic board on this machine.
