    Thank you very much.
    I got a discount for the Nvidia GT430 (Just a little more expensive than GT220), I'll go for it.

    came here to say this.

    can you please point me to places where i can learn more about this? trying to decide if i use vlc or xbmc-core

    Does this mean i would have decent video acc with nvidia OSS? i don't care much about power consumption and price, but i'd love to be able to use the OSS drivers alone on my htpc.
    or is this just to point out that ati would be even worse then the already bad nvidia oss?
