Radeon 9800 Pro SE DVD playback problem

in Genius Bar edited January 2014
Ok, here is the problem:

I just installed an ATI 9800 Pro SE (256mb) card in my 1.8ghz G5 tower. This is an upgrade from a FX5200. The DVD playback performance is HORRIBLE. It is kind of choppy, and has a tendency to flicker. The performance w/ the FX5200 was flawless.

Machine specs:

single 1.8ghz G5

ram: 1.5gig

HD: 160gig

Firewire drive: 200gig

23" HD display

OS X 10.3.7

I installed the latest drivers from ATI (via the Apple site)

Any direction is very much appreciated and TIA.
