I don't think the CPU is your problem. Do you have a TNT-2 or older
Nvidia chip? The XVideo support for them is not complete, which means
taht watching videos becomes _very_ CPU intensive. Although, the nvidia
drivers does support XVideo at TNT-2. With modern Nvidia cards, I did
not notice any big difference except of GLX support. And the NV driver
is less buggy WRT power saving system modes.

<martoss> hmm, naja, aber kde 2 ist nicht wirklich prickelnd
<weasel> martoss: wenn du was prickelndes willst, trink mineralwasser
<martoss> weasel: :-), ich weiss, aber es muss halt auch ein bischen was fürs
	auge da sein...
<youam> martoss: dann tu nen strohhalm rein! :)
