Default Re: 9400GT or 8400GS PCI for vdpau (xbmc)

Wait, do you mean PCIE? If so, that is a different story.
Nope I don't mean PCI-e, I mean PCI, old school 2.1 interface. I've never used a PCI card before but as far as I can tell (googling) the 8400GS and the 9400GT PCI cards should be able to playback h.264 hd, even 1080p.

I may be wrong though. Would be good to get some opinions before I shell out.
