which version K7S5A do you have? I have a 1.1 with a XP 2200+ on it.
I'd love to be able to put one of the 3000+ XP if it has the
horsepower to play HD but ECS's web page shows it only supporting up
to the 2600+. Would the 2600+ be fast enough? will the board support a
faster XP and they just haven't updated their webpage?
As for the nvidia vs ati, I think the only real difference is XvMC,
and possible pink bar issue with some radeon chipsets.
