nvidia 8 series using first gen pure video, nvidia 9 series have a new pure video, its suppose to help more with HD decoding.
With CoreAVC you would only shave 1-5% cpu usage during play back.
your best choice is to get a Asus AGP 3450. In the up coming months powercolor is going to release a ati 4xxx series AGP, the ati 4 series might be able to shave a bit more cpu usage.
forgot you wanted PCI.
