Not much, no. Not any difference that would be significant for your situation, 
anyhow. (An AGP nVidia card is a bit better than on-board nForce2 graphics 
for HDTV).

Haven't got a Pundit, can't say. I do have a SiS card, roughly equivalent to 
the original Pundit's on-board video that isn't quite as good as my nVidia 
cards. The on-board Radeon in the Pundit-R is being used successfully by a 
number of people, but the driver support for it isn't as mature as nVidia's.
