I have a K6-II 350 (w/o MTRR support) and a P-II 400, with a G200.
Both CPUs are fast enough to decode most movies (because resizing
is done in haredware on the G200). The only problem I saw until
now is that the K6-II board (an Asus P5A) is too slow for
high res movies. ie the bandwith to the graphics card is the limiting
factor (difference is over factor 3!).

Use a fast graphics card, anything else does not matter :-)
And try to minimze the the amount of bytes/sec of the decoded
stream (video and audio)

Maybe MTRR support with newer K6-II and K6-III can help with
the bandwith problem, can't test it.
