What you think about collection of different benchmark tests on different hardware?
IMHO, many people interest with it. It can help them to decide about purchasing
new hardware or upgrading old. So far as I understand many people are ready to give
such information about own hardware. It would be better to have comparsion results
of playing video streams on ATIRageon vs MatroxG450 vs NVidia(3300-7700) vs
Savage2000 and a lot other video cards. ;) It could be subject 
'Best video card for MPlayer' or 'Best setting for different video cards' in
DOCS/VIDEOCARDS file. There could be suggestions about driver version, driver setting,
kernel settings, X11 setting and much more. It can be expandable by new reports of users.

Best regards! Nick
