Not sure if I do have it installed, you got a URL to the file? How are you checking it (CPU usage) I'll use the same check so we are on the same page.

Of course I know my CPU is limitting me.

But I can watch a DVD with no probs and only a small amount of CPU is being used.

just use task manager (ctr-alt-del) and keep the media player thread selected
if you don't think you have nvidias decoder then chances are you don't

Afraid of that, used Winamp and the task manager, while playing Step into liquid. 82-97% mostly in the high 90's

Do I need the decoder to give this a trial run, sorry haven't slept much...

it still sounds like you are getting some hardware assist though, on my 3400+ it's 99% and stuttery as hell

Cool

hardware acceleration from the 3dcard or not you still need a good cpu to run this well, the athlon64 in particular helps considerably with its onboard memory controller however i think the CPU is still comming into the equation which is why your overclocked Tbred B might be stuttering rotty.

graham/daniel what cpus are you guys running?

Athlon 64 3400+
with hardware acceleration you should be able to manage with about a 2000+/2ghz processor so rottys may have hardware acceleration enabled, but it's safe to say I haven't

I'm at 200 1/1
Htt 4 can do 2200 but it won't fold, keeps trashing WUs so I stay @ 2 gigs.
