Thanks for the time taken to reply.
I ran cyberlink software and the results came up as follows:
Hardware Dual-Video DeCoding Capability for H.264 - None
Hardware Dual-Video DeCoding Capability for MPEG-2 - None
Hardware Dual-Video DeCoding Capability for VC-1 - None
Dual Video decoding capability for MVC
(I suppose this card has the above….nvidia geforce 9600gt)
I need which video card to go for. Should I go for Asus products and if yes which one please.
Do not buy the GTX 465 if you are not a gamer. There is no need to spend $150+ card for watching movies.
My recommendation is a HD 5570 for $60 after rebate. It good enough for watching movies, general tasks and web based (Flash) games. This card is comparable to the slightly older HD 4670 which was considered a mainstream gaming card back when it was introduced.
