OK, I am behind the times with my Dual 2.7 PowerPC G5. I have 7GB of RAM and a 256MB AGP card that I can't remember the numbers on right now (I'm at work).
I have not done much in AE with this machine. While working on a new project over the weekend, the machine really was having a problem with a video copilot preset, sure target. Trying to move keyframes on the sure target layer was causing the computer to hesitate every time I move one.
I want to know if upgrading the graphics card to a PCIe card will help the performance of AE in this aspect. If so, what's the best card I can get. I'm trying to squeeze another 6 months out of this machine before buying another one.
