FCP X lagging What kind of graphics card?

Final Cut pro x lags and I wanted to know how to make it go faster.


Here is the stats on my early 2009 Mac Pro:

Processor 2.66 GHz Quad-Core Intel Xeon
Memory 16 GB 1066 MHz DDR3 ECC
Graphics NVIDIA GeForce GT 120 512 MB
Software OS X 10.8.2 (12C60)



Here is a graphcs card I was thinking about and not sure if it is compatible with my type of mac pro.
AMD (ATI) Radeon HD 6750M graphics card

i want it to run as smooth as possible.

Let me know if there is more I can do besides just updating the graphics card.


Really I dont know much about hardware compatibility and would like some advice if possible. Thank you.

Old non ATI graphic card may well be the problem. The FCPX techniques forum would be a better place to ask as most here don't use FCPX.

That's a mobile graphics card. Hence the M. You'll find it in 2012 MacBook Pros and maybe iMacs.

I think you may want to look into the Radeon 5870.
