The adapter may be a bottleneck. Had similar problems slow boot times, unable to boot from disc etc so purchased a BenQ 22" LED. Sadly the day of ADC is long gone.

For your needs can recommend the ATI Radeon HD4870 1GB card, which is a flashed PC card. Have a look on eBay for such. Can also recommend local338 dealer from Hong Kong purchased card, PCI equipment from them many times. Next choice would be a slower nVidia GeForce 8800GT which must be for 1st Generation Mac Pros. There are two versions.

Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!
