Recently was forced to upgrade video card as well as motherboard.
I bought an ASUS AGP v6800 Deluxe (32mb DDR SGRAM) and purchased a motherboard that uses AGP 2x. While the 6800 is capable of 4x, I simply didn't want to replace processor, MB, case and card.
Since purchasing this card (which uses the nVidia GeForce 256 GPU) I have been unable to watch DVDs on my PC with a decent framerate. I used to watch on an 8mb ATI card at AGP 1x, with no drop off. Now, I can't get 30 fps, at any resolution or color depth.
My DVD-Rom does not use DMA. I am wondering is this is what is causing the problems. Whenever I try and enable the GeForce hardware acceleration in WinDVD2000 or PCDVD 2.55, I either get corrupted displays, or the program causes an error in an unknown module.
I'm running Windows ME with an AMD-K63 400Mhz with 128mb of ram.
Any help would be appreciated!
