It's a good card with enough video ram. But with crappy drivers. flgrx
drivers has problems with -vo xv on high resolutions. Also, they have
problems on low resolutions, the image is pixilated - at least for some
videos. Looks like it incorrectly uses card resources.
The real solution is to use -vo xvidix. You'll be able to play videos in
any resolution and without any bad effects (but there are drawbacks -
you'll have to use suid root mplayer, 'alias mplayer="sudo mplayer"'
solution that I use works too). Also it can be a bit faster than xv (and
much faster than x11).
I can play 1920x1080 wmv videos just fine with 60% load under xvidix.
With non-vidix drivers either a lot of drop frames occur or it's
Actually, if you don't use video players beside mplayer, I suggest you
to turn of video overlay and turn on gl overlay in config file. You
still will be able to use xvidix and you won't need that crappy xv
