My System Specs

Default ATOM 230 + 2400Pro PCI - Poor HD


Intel D945GCDF (Atom 230)
HD2400Pro PCI (8.6 seems to be the last cat's available for it)
Sammy LN32A450
Xp Pro 32bit
assorted other fluff

Granted, I didn't originally intend to use this system as an HTPC, but rather as a basic file server/ftp/TS server, but I did expect to at least be able to playback 720P with a 2400Pro. HD playback is really chunky as if the acceleration of the card isn't working at all. Is the Atom 230 just that weak that it can't do it even with the 2400Pro? Or is the 2400Pro PCI crippled - I've already discovered it doesn't have audio and I have to use the onboard sound and that it's not HDCP ready.
All's well that's Haswell
