In that case, if you don't want to use one of your old video cards you could sell them and use the money to buy a 3xxx series of 4xxx series video card from ATI that has hardware video decoding onboard - it should take most of the strain off the processor when watching Hi-def stuff. Also, you could probably find a dual-core upgrade for that 939 pretty easily on ebay. I've seen the 4200+ (Dual 2.2Ghz) go for as little as $60 on there. Good luck!
