I just got my LG GGW-H20L. I would rarely watch any high-def movies on it, but I had a question about altering my PC setup to best take advantage of those times when I would want to pop in a movie.
The PC where I have the GGW-H20L installed is an Intel P35 chipset with an NVIDIA GeForce 8800GTX video card. While this would be fine for watching HD content, since the GTX is not Purevideo HD capable, I would have to content with high CPU usage. But I really like how the GTX performs in games, and I would not want to downgrade to an 8800GTS 512. Nor can I afford to upgrade to a 9800GX2 or ATI 3870X2.
What I would like to know is if I can purchase an inexpensive Purevideo card (like an 8400GS) and put it in my motherboard’s 2nd PCI-Express slot and be able to take advantage of its HD video features but still use my 8800 for gaming.
Any help is appreciated.
