Streaming hulu, youtube videos in HD

I have a 128mb geforce 5500fx gfx card and was wondering if a better graphics card would help me more. I have a 2.10ghz amd 3000+ cpu
While streaming these videos I notice that my cpu usage skyrockets to 100% all the time.  I wonder if my cpu is taking all the hits instead of graphics card..
THANKS!

    Maybe more RAM is the answer. How much memory do you have in your computer? If you don't know, then go into the BIOS and look in there. Let me know.

You have plenty of CPU power. It will max out because the cpu is constantly processing the information to continue streaming the information to your screen, that is very normal. I would suggest some more RAM, at least 1 gig and only get a different video card if your into heavy game play with the newer online games out there.

I'm suggesting the extra RAM because it is a good way to make sure the more of the information is streaming at one time so there is less of a chance for interruption during streaming. Hope this helps.

    Go into msconfig and underneath the startup tab you can disable programs in there. everything with a checkmark is running in the background, it could be a program that is reeking havoc. What OS are you running?

How to play high graphics games with my 128mb video card


This is not possible you would need to upgrade your gfx card, Over clocking it could help but as its so small anyway it would just over-heat and produce problems
Replacing it is best option.

Graphics Comparison


I beleive that your onboard is pretty much the equivelent to the geforce card you have spec-wise. But the 3300 a much new technology and has a faster processing speed in comparison to the geforce 6600 (not sure about the 7200).

In anycase, if you get yourself another ATI HD card (2400, 3450, or 3470) you can actually run them both as a Crossfire set up. Also, you can slight overclock your onboard video just a tad if that is a route you wanted to take.

The HD 3300 onboard was meant to be a better option over more entry level cards on the market today.

If you're still not sure, you can always do a 3dmark or gaming FPS test on each gpu to see which gives you the best outcomes.

Need a new slim,low power gfx card


Hello,

I would advise your friend to ugrade that PSU first. 450-500w at least. Depending upon your friends preference, both ATI and Nvidia offer decent cards for under 100 bucks. For the $200.00 he could upgrade both. Check out www.newegg.com. Thats where I buy all my stuff.

Good Luck!

Computer and video card memory/ram


Hello there.

Answers to questions are reported on the website.
Graphics card memory is independent of main system memory. Your graphics card has 256MB of memory dedicated to graphical tasks, such as playing videos, games and animations. Main system memory is seperate and is used for loading programs and applications.

New graphics cards will have even more memory, so to answer your question: no video memory on the graphics card does not have to match main system memory in the computer.

Possible times when main system ram is used by the graphics card is when the graphics hardware is integrated into the motherboard. Please click here to find out more about graphics video memory.

Hope this helps.
