I've got a White Macbook, 2Ghz 250GBHD 2GB Ram. Ive been getting into video editing and want to get final cut pro, the problem is that it requires an AGP graphics card and ive got the dinky standard GMA 950. I am very computer savvy for the most part but graphics cards are something i havnt dealt with, is that something that i could upgrade myself?

The GPU is not an upgradable part. There are no third party substitutes.

To take advantage Color and Motion, you'll need more horsepower I think.

Final Cut Pro it self, just like Final Cut Express should run on that system.

Check the specs page for each; FCS, FCE.

CameraTime - Time lapse photography for novice and advanced users.

When asking questions, post the version of your software. You'll receive better answers.

Please post your results to the thread as it is good feedback.
