I have an opteron 170 with 2GB of RAM.. which is hence much lower specced than
your machine. 

I use an Nvidia 7600 GS silent PCI-E (oldie but a goodie).. and I have no problem
with HD at all... 

I've never been keen on ATI video cards after some horrible early experiences..
but I have never had an issue with 

On my second frontend I run it to a 1600 * 1050 22" monitor with an FX-5700 AGP
again without any issues.. I suggest picking up a cheap PCIE NVIDIA card (8400
GS) .. such a shame to waste such a powerful machine by underpowering the video..
