    Choppy is one thing, but does every single driver run your CPU at 99%?

    Yes, every single one is running at~90%cpu when youtube is in fullscreen. The thing is, everything was perfectly fine 2-3 days ago. My gf runs great on winXP no choppyness or high cpu usage at all.

    You did mention this in your first post. Were you running with proprietary drivers at that time? Do you recall an update that may have destabilized your system? Does XP run without problems now? Please check XP while you have YouTube up and running full screen (using task manager) to see what your CPU load is.

    If the system is stable with Nouveau, but not proprietary drivers, you may be stuck with Nouveau.

    You could also try the 319 driver linked to here. But if the older drivers don't work, there's no reason to assume that this newer one will work either.
