the x300 is simmilar to my radeon 9600SE. You can do editing with any card, it would just be slow. If you use 3D software like MAYA for editing like the dudes in MATRIX, then it would be pretty slow, but should to the trick cuz I do MAYA animation too and it goes pretty smooth. Just give it a try and if it is way to slow upgrade ur pc. Just post here and we'll help u decide what to upgrade.
