Been trying to find a definitive answer, but as a relative n00b I guess I just don't know where to look.

I just got a new ASUS M3A78-EM mobo (780g chipset, onboard HD3200 video) for my brand new HTPC/MythTv box.

And what I'd like to know is, what is the state of hardware video decode acceleration (for the various video formats such as MPEG2 and H.264), for either the open source or proprietary drivers, for this model of video card?

(And the follow-up question, implied: Do I go back to the store, where I actually ordered an M3N78-EM (Nvidia), and get them to swap the one I got for the one I asked for?)

Big thanks in advance.
