  1. 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.

    It might meet your needs well. Hope u find the best bet. Good luck for u.


    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.

    The following are specs for the HD 5570 from AMD's site:

    Here's a review of the HD 5570 which focuses on video quality:

    There's a sub-forum for video cards which I suggest that you post your next question if you do not think the HD 5570 is sufficient for your needs. I only came across your thread by accident.

  3. Took your advise and ordered the card. reference to newegg Tomshardware forum given.
    I will try and let you know my experience.
    Thanks for your help.
