Stream HD 1080p youtube with perfect quality?

Amd Sempron LE 1300 2.3 Ghz single core processor
2 Gb Ram ddr2
Geforce GT 520 3gb ddr3
standard HDD 500gb

It plays any youtube video 720p+ really choppy and laggy

Several months ago I built a low-cost home theater system using a Sempron 145 (2.8ghz) and an AMD HD6670 video card. Some choppy movie playback until I overclocked the Sempron to 3.3ghz. Don't know if this is possible with your cpu.

EDIT: You need to be sure your internet connection speed is not the cause of the choppiness.

Our internet is def. Not the problem, I think the processor just sucks, I added 2gb of ram and same issue

Anyone know a decent processor I could add to this comp to get it up to date

Personally, I wouldn't waste any money upgrading the system. You'd be much happier building a new low-cost tower for about $300. That Sempron (AM2) setup is obsolete.

EDIT: What motherboard is this system using?
