Either I've got it configured wrong, or GPU usage is maxing out at about 13% while still using about 15% of the CPU.

I went by this: DXVA Support in MPC Home Cinema

Thanks for sharing your findings :)

15% on CPU is kinda high, I think you just need to disable your external codecs on MPC-HC. I definitely believe those ati 5xxx will do a fine job

Thanks again

My results with a nvidia card Even a 4350 have better results than nvidia's VP2

Booyah!

ORB - Compare

20K with a single GPU at last (I've done this before with a 4870X2 and a pair of 5850's)

3.7GHZ and 900/1200

I'm rather surprised to see somebody still running Vista

Nice clocks though. Should get the volts up and go for more!

I haven't had the cash to upgrade With the 2 service packs it doesn't work half bad.

Hopefully in the next 2 or 3 months I'll have some extra money to buy a 5850. I might ask you for advice on overclocking ;). Breaking 20k with a single 5850 is pretty decent.

Thread cleaned. Most of you should know better then discussing buying/selling copies of windows as most times then not its against the EULA.
