64 > 256 Video Card

I've got a G5 2.0 powermac & was wondering if it's worth it to upgrade the video card from the present GeForce FX 5200 64mb card to a 256 card.
I've got the $ right now to max out this G5, but am wondering if I should just hold out for a new "Pro" in a year or so?
Thanks,
Chris

Unless you use Motion extensively and feel that your card is too slow, I'd hold off until I could get a new system, but it's ultimately up to you.

Thanks Chris,
I am using motion more as I get used to it, but my biggest issue is with dropped frames in FCP & right now I'm still working in SD.
So I guess a card upgrade wouldn't really help in FCP?
