Both your video card are extremely old and weak. If you try to view HD movies you will surely get pixellation since the card is too weak to process the huge amount of data in the video file. You really must get something much better, something like

This one is about 6 generation above what you have now.
This is something cheaper, just 5 generations above

A generic question about a video card - I currently have a nvidia fx5200 (I think that's it) 256MB memory on the card and I installed a fan cooler for it. I just bought a 20" lcd Monitor, but when...


Viewing movies on a computer is not really just based on how big is the video card RAM. Try watching a high resolution movie or from an original DVD. It should not pixillate as long as the file is supported and the your monitor can project clearly 256RAM is sufficient.
But if your a gamer and want a higher resolution, that is the only time you'll need not just the RAM but also the speed. If your looking for an upgrade and your not doing multitasking on you computer you should settle on 256 to 512MB but with a faster RAM DDR5.

My graphic card wont support the games with it's requirement also


Have you tried replacing your monitor or lcd with a higher resolution or configuration? If not please do so. Because even thou you have a high graphics card but your monitor or lcd does not support your hardware requirements, it won't work at all. Try using an LCD with HDMI port or a higher model of LCD that are applicable in watching videos or playing games.

This one really depends on the game or application your trying to use. Bioware for example most recently had an issue with Mass Effect 2 in which the game did not work well on non-dual processors to spite system specifications. The issue had to do with the movies, not the the rendered scenes. Ironically, new compression standards have made some video more intensive on lower end processors than fully 3D rendered scenes. If the problem was heating or damage to the card, you would crash after a certain amount of use, not at a certain point in the game. If you think it is the card, you can turn everything down to the lowest setting and see if the issue goes away. But I'm betting it won't. I would check the other components...make sure your system RAM is good, look for patches or forum complaints about the game your playing, and close out anything like Skype, Steam, messenger clients, etc. that your not using.

Change to a bigger monitor and the movies looks in slow motion


If the BIOS allows it, allot some more memory for video to at least 256 MB or above and I am sure your problem will be solved..............sodeep

It's because your GPU cant handle the resolution that you are currently running in.
