[mythtv-users] Is my p3-700 fast enough for a wintv capture card?

A friend of mine gave me an older Hauppauge WinTV capture card that I would like to use as a second capture card.  (My primary card is a PVR-350).  I installed the card and drivers and got everything working for the most part, but the video is choppy, and watching live tv takes 100% of my CPU at the default compression settings.  

Before I burn too many BTU's trying to get it working, could someone tell me if my P3-700 is sufficient to simultaneously encode/decode and watch live TV?  Or should I be looking at a PVR-250 for my second capture card?

If my p3-700 won't cut it, then how do I remove the second card from mythtv?  I can add cards in the mythtvsetup menu, but I can't see how to remove it...
