Hello everyone,
I have a 1.6 ghz Power Mac G5 (first revision). I use EyeTV to record HD video in mpeg-2 format, and the playback on the G5 on just a 20 inch widescreen is not good at all, really. Would a video card upgrade help this, and would the playback still be smooth on a 30 inch Apple Cinema Display if the upgraded card supported it? The current card is the stock GeForce FX 5200.

Thanks for your help
