when "trying" to stream web videos (both Flash and Quicktime), the playback is choppy and the audio doesn't sync very well. I have a fairly fast internet connection 12mb/sec.; cable NOT DSL. Is this issue because my machine is old or my video card isn't good enough? as you can see below my machine is an 867 MHz PowerPC G4... (see the details below).

I have tried to let the video buffer significantly, and still the video is choppy, almost like watching a slide show, rather than a video.

My fear is that my machine is not up to snuff and i will have to buy a new INTEL machine...
any help at all would be GREAT!!!

867 MHz PowerPC G4, Mac OS X (10.4.11), 2MB L3 cache, 1.5 GB SDRAM, Radeon 7500 w/32MB video card, ATA 32 GB HD HFS+
