Well after a couple of weeks playing and failing I've reverted to my 9600XT. In software mode the PQ isn't quite what the 6800 could do, mainly I think due to NVidia's superior rendering via VMR over ATI's Overlay, though in hardware mode the 6800's a lot better .. this is using TheaterTek 2 with the NVidia decoders so much of NVidia's superior decoding is available to me with the ATI. However, the's one thing the ATI does which the NVidia can't .. 50hz operation. I've fiddled, tweaked and twiddled, using Powerstrip and Reclock, but nothing will persuade the 6800 to use anything other than 60hz via DVI to my Z200E. Yes, the NVidia control panel SAYS it's doing 75Hz (won't let me set 50 but 75 is fine for PAL), but my Z200E still sees 60 and Reclock says the same. Interestingly, the CRT I'm running in clone mode DOES switch to 75, but it seems the DVI is stuck at 60. Drop in the 9600 and voila, the Z200E sees 50 and Reclock syncs perfectly. So, slightly inferioir PQ but no stuttering at all. Is my problem with the NVidia's DVI something others have seen?
