I may be wrong, and maybe Rob could clarify this, but I'm pretty sure that is all handled by the processor. I think only if you were to edit the video that you would need a semi-decent graphics card, and the one you have right now should be able to handle the video on that tape just fine. your problem is most likely your processor, but like I said, I wouldn't take my word for it 100%. This is one thing I'm not sure about myself, so we'll both get some understanding once Rob chimes in
