I have limited budget at this time. Enough for one card or the other and I am getting conflicting answers so I want to bring it to the forums...
The post house sent me footage ingested in AJA 10 bit uncompressed from a Teleciny in '93. 3;2 pulldown, interlaced, 525 line in MOV. format. In quicktime it is showing as Format: Ajav210, 654 X 486 Millions, Data Rate 228.37... I spoke to the builder of my system and they recommended upgrading to a Nvidia 4000 from my current NVIDIA Quadro FX1700 since I am having issues with seeing the titles jumping and some jagged edges on shots with angles and I can not seem to get the footage to play full res. Do I need a Kona Card instead since that would directly handle the AJA injest or will the 4000 take care of it? I am looking for a price point under a grand so probably the KONA LHe Plus. If I had the Kona I could down convert this so in theory the FX1700 could handle it.
Again I appreciate your time and experience in this!

Honestly, you may not need either. The 210 codec is built into PP, and the current Quadro is not likely to be causing your problems.
So, let's get some more details on the actual problem and maybe we can solve that.
