8800 GTX - GT beta 169.44 & Antec TPQ850

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Well, for those of you who are aware of the power/communication issues with the TPQ 850 (other brand cards as well noted by Antec) and the 8800 GTX and now the 8800 GT will know that at least 2 individuals including myself have confirmed the beta 169.44 driver fix's this power issue.
My concern now is that the beta driver hinders x264 encoded movies. I wanted to see if I was on the right track I guess. Now that I've updated the driver, power issue is gone, YAY !! but the movies seem to stutter or shutter so to speak a lot unless I shut the player (VLC) down and restart it.
.mkv files from HD/Bluray encoded movies. Could this also be a codec issue here on my end? I recently formatted to x64 XP Pro but did not notice any difference in playing quality prior to the 169.44 driver install. Is there any tricks I could try messing with? Thanks for any insight.
