Should I notice a performance increase when encoding video after upgrading a video card?

Unless you're trying to view a video "while" encoding ..... then yes. It would benefit slightly ...but even then only miniscule if its not HiDef viewing. joefriday August 13, 2006 7:24:29 PM A video card will not help you encode video unless it is one of the ATI X1xxx series of cards, then you could encode video 5x faster than with cpu alone, using ATI's free converting software.
