Pls recommend a vid card for streaming video


My wife enjoys the "Big Brother" show. They have multi- view video streams over 'realplayer". How hi do I need to go on a video card. I have a ati 1650 pro, but I am wondering if I need to go higher/newer. Not much on games, but need DVI-output.

Motherboard Asus p5ql-pro
Intel E6300
2g Corsair memory

Thanks

Try it and see what happens first.
These are great for just about everything:

should you decide to upgrade.
Be sure that your power supply can handle it.

Thanks Chuck,
One card i have been looking at is the Sapphire HD4650 512MB DDR3 at <$55.
Is it overkill?

nothing is overkill :P that 4650 will be more than enough for what you want it for and a really good price

A 4350 would probably do it, really.
