For those that have absolutely zero interest in playing games, I still want to know:

Does going beyond the typical GeForce 6200 / 256 mb AGP card give you better video playback for hi-res movies?

How much of divx or MPG decoding is done on the card vs done by the cpu?

I have a 7900GS, which as per above posts is very close to the last officially supported Nvidia GPU, and it is definitely better than the 6600, and the difference over the 6200 should be even more.   I'll see if I can find a 6200 and test them.

I remember reading some NVIDIA papers about video decoding a long time ago, but I highly doubt that those are still on NVIDIA's site.   But there is wikipedia:  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nvidia_PureVideo
