To make sure there is no misunderstanding:
GeForce 7600 does not support VDPAU and does not support hardware accelerated decoding of H264 (and VC1) on Linux, but it does support XVMC (hardware accelerated MPEG-2 Video decoding) afaik.
I have AGP port, so if I find Geforce 8400 PCI ( yes I do not have PCI-e slots) it is posible.
Or do I need "the G98 chip" on Geforce 8400 ?
Note that all Geforce 8400 support VDPAU (even the ones without G98 and its VP3 bug), but since only G98 supports PCI, it does not matter for you.
Also, what is state with ATi drivers on Linux ?
(to make sure it's not us Nvidia-Fans who claim that nothing at all works.)
