    My PowerMac plays most small videos (640p) on YouTube just fine, as well it does an OK job at playing slightly larger videos in Quicktime.

    I would like to not have to worry about Flash any more. With the new 10.1 beta 2 I notice a nice boost in performance, almost tolerable. If I install a graphics card that supports Core Video will it free up the CPU?

    How can I tell if a card supports Core Video? As well, what cards do you recommend? Is it difficult to flash a graphics card to work with OS X Tiger in a PowerMac G4?

    Thanks.

    Then you'll need to buy an Intel Mac.

    Um...great, yeah, but I don't have a problem currently using the 10.1 beta when playing Flash games, like Webkinz. Does Core Video effect Flash playback or take any of Adobe's load off the CPU?
