Is it possible to output 1080 to a 50" LG Plasma from a PowerMac G4 MDD?

Update:11-30Source: network consolidation

PowerMac G4 MDD Dual 1Ghz
1.5GB Ram
AGP GeForce 4MX
OSX 10.2.8
LG 50PY3DF (50" LG Plasma)
I work in a video department and recently got new Mac Pros leaving us with some spare G4's. We're looking into having one of the G4s replace the old iMac in the studio and connect it to the 50" LG Plasma to display HD Graphics/Video. Currently we have an older iMac connected to it through a scan converter displaying at it's highest resolution which is low, so the image isnt good on the plasma.
I've looked into 2 cards for the G4, the ATI Radeon 9600 Pro and 9800 Pro, so that I could then output from DVI to HDMI. They both support 1920x1080 (9600 @ 150hz and the 9800 @ 120hz for analog monitors).
Does the analog refresh rate differ from a plasma refresh rate? The LG accepts 1920x1080 60hz at RGB/HDMI-PC, 1920x1080 75hz RGB-PC, and 1920x1080 24-60hz HDMI-DTV.
Any Ideas? Thanks
