    Re: Reviving what should be left dead.

    I have to say this card is somewhat pissing me off. It will play a 720 mkv file from my pc no prob. there is the slightest amount of stutter, very watchable. It get constant solid 60fps in glxgears....

    Re: Reviving what should be left dead.

    also I have been unclear because I had a box for a different card in my desk that I kept reading as I was writting. I have a PCI(not e) GT 520 from Zotac in my old hunk of junk.
  11. Gt 520 pci is a pain. Will not boot. Will not play with drivers.

    Re: Reviving what should be left dead.

    I tried the openbox session but saw no notisable results. The 100% was indeed while playing flash video. I feel like flash is super bloated if it takes more than a 2.3GHz processor just to play SD...

    I tried Lubuntu and monitored the CPU usage. It was constantly at 100% while playing a video. Does that mean that it is a lost cause? I will keep trying, at least for now, to see if I can squeeze a...

    Re: Reviving what should be left dead.
