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.
