Default Card for vdpau PCI-E x4

Hi All

I am in the process of selecting a video card that I want to be vdpau compatible and would prefer if it could handle all the Advanced de-interlacing etc.

The machine that the card will go in only has a slot capable of running at PCI-E x4 speeds. It will be able to accept a x16 card by modifying the slot slightly.

I am happy to purchase an 8600gt or 9500gt if that is what is required to make the most of vdpau and the advanced de-interlacing, but will this work if the card is only running at x4 speeds?

Should I just get an 8400gs (I see Sparkle have announced a PCI-E x1 version) and hope things change for the better in the future?

I have a PCI FX5200 at the moment and have to use XvMC and it doesn't work half the time.

Thanks
Ben

If I remember correctly, some people are using VDPAU even on PCI cards, and it seems to work fine.

That's true, but I think the only PCI cards are 8400gs and 9400gt? and from the reports I have seen they won't do all the fancy de-interlacing.

Still curious if anyone knows the answer to this.

Thanks
Ben
