Sounds to me like your machine just doesn't have enough power to
decode your AVIs. 

Get the x2divx package. In it are avi2divx and mpeg2divx. You can use
avi2divx to re-encode your divx file to a lower resolution. Drop it down
from 640x400 to 320x200, and encode 2000 frames or so. Test the output.
My guess is that it will play fine. 

If it does, your solution is to get a new machine, not just a new 
video card.
