Default PT11/12 video engine hang, upgrade GPU?

I have so far never been able to get the video engine in PT V's 11 or12 to load it just hangs at 99% (Avid video engine not responding in activity monitor)

I know my old 2008 3.1 mac pro is not qualified for 11/12 but seeing as the audio side works fine I had thought it might be my video card as it only has 256MB of VRAM!

Was wondering if an upgrade to a 2GB mac qualified graphics card might solve this problem, anyone tried this?
