I just bought a bunch of new hardware for my system, new mobo (Asus P5N-D), new ram (2GB corsair 800mhz), and of course a 8800 GT (BFG OC2). everything is set up, it does games without a hitch, only limited by my ancient single core processor, hence my problem. If I had a somewhat decent core 2 then this wouldn't be such a problem but even tho it claims to have the ability to decode video and take all the workload away from the CPU it doesn't. My processor is running 3.75 Ghz but it just isn't enough for full 1080p. I'm using VLC and have tried media player classic but both fail to make any use of my video card. Any help or suggestions would be most appreciated.
