    ok folks im not 2 impressed with the dvd playback using any software player using my gf4ti4200, so which is best to go for a Hollywood + card r an ati radeon.
    Now i have had in the past a few hollywood cards and had problems with a certain chip blow on them and would like to know if this problem still ocurs. Or did I just have 2 faulty units in a row.
    Thanks

    Well if you're a gamer (like me ;) ) & can afford it, go for a 9700 Pro.

    If just for DVD playback, anything from the 9000 up, the 9500 being a good balance between performance & price.
