Default top or htop for the GPU?

I'm trying to troubleshoot some playback issues with my 8400GS. Well, I guess the first question is if the 8400GS has enough power to playback 1080@24 bluray? This is the first time I've attempted to play back a .mkv rip of a bluray (Voyage of the Dawn Treader) in Mythtv. Every few seconds I'd get dropped frames and audio dropouts.

During playback the CPU idles at 1000Mhz (it's 2800Mhz at full speed) and via top Mythtv takes about 8% CPU time.

I'm going to try upping the scaling_min_freq to 1800 to see if that helps (AMD processor so I'm not sure if the bus speed is being reduced with the CPU clock).

Then again, should I pick up a passive cooled 430?
