I would say no, in fact I think it'll make playback worse.  The 5200 has 
  more hardware acceleration for video than many of the newer cards. 
iDtc, motion compensation, chroma keying, etc.  I was able to get HD 
going on an XP 1800 so I'm fairly certain you can on a 3000.  What 
problems are you having?  You should provide more detail about you 
system, distribution, software versions, etc.
