At least 512MB, which is memory, not speed. Don't know what your budget is.

Per suggestions, I purchased & installed a new graphics card (Gigabyte HD 5670). This solved the issue - no more jitters or hesitation with my 3D graphics!

@GAross im glad you've solved the issue and a very nice card at that i might add i actually had a hd5670 as my first card on my new system but opted to turn it in and get a hd 5770

Im sure you will be glad with the performance and speed you can also oc it with the ati overdrive but be carefull when tuning the card im sure you can get max performance and set the fan to about 70% assure you optimal performance and not to much noise as well cause in gaming etc proper cooling and fan control will keep you alive and well

Anyways enjoy you're new toy

More great advice! And, better than the advice I received from Microsoft support recently. Their advice was that a new card wouldn't help, that the issue was my software having issues (& being pre-Vista) with Win 7 64bit. New software was their advice or possibly re-installing with Win 7 32bit. Well, I wouldn't have upped to Win 7 for 32bit.

I loaded many of the 3D files that were causing issues to test the new card. Nothing locked up; no hesitation whatsoever. Before I couldn't run these with a small preview screen. Now, full screen HD (1920x1080) with several other windows open - it's flawless. This would of jammed the old card; locking the screen up for several minutes until it caught up. While it may not be state of the art for 3D gaming, it fills my needs & that's all I was asking it to do.

The future is 64bit; even if it takes a while for everything to catch up. Years ago I wanted to upgrade to Vista 64bit but with so many complaints, I waited. I didn't want to step backwards by re-installing Win 32bit.

Thanks. You guys are the best!

While the trend for the 64bit OS is expected I wouldn't knock the 32bit 7 too fast! That's proved itself to be superior to any past version and was found to be far more backward compatible then Vista was from the start.

While new build was down here for a bit I ran a temp install of the 32bit on an old single core job seeing a 128mb AGP 4x card and onboard sound all XP drivers note. Everything worked drivers included on the fast 7 install there! No Vista drivers available for a system that old but the 32bit 7 ran it all just the same!

The move into the new card was the obvious need you had there and proved to be the working solution. Glad to hear you having great results!
