Default Can Gigabyte GeForce 7600 GS 512MB AGP run 1080 movies ?

Hello,

I am planing to buy Gigabyte GeForce 7600 GS 512MB AGP, so it is AGP graphic port on motherboards.

Motivation for buying that video card is because I wont to watch 1080 movies on my coumputer.
I currently can not watch 1080 movies on my coumputer, because CPU is at 100% (even on 720 movies), my CPU is P4 2.0 GHz.
So my idea is to buy that video card in hope that it will do movie procesing.

I was googling, but did not found any concrete answers.
I found only this document http://www.nvidia.com/docs/CP/11036/...Comparison.pdf, and it look like it is possible.

But will this work in practice, does somebody have some experience with this stuff ?
Last thing that I wont is to buy card and then to be disappointed.

I my distro is CrunchBang Linux.

Thanks
