Best / cheapest gfx card for UI2 maxed.
« on: April 14, 2008, 02:47:37 pm »
Hi,

What is the best GFX card for using UI2, fully loaded with alphablending and icing on the top?

I have an Nvidia 7300. If I use that with UI2 alphablending the picture seams to tear 2-3 places while playing movies like "interlaced" where the top middle and buttom part are not sync'ed when the camera pans. Is it UI2 or just the gfx that can't keep up or some other setting that i am missing?

Now i am stucked with UI2, overlay (O2 ?) using the onboard GMA950 (Works like a dream). I Tried to run UI2 with alphablending with the GMA 950 that resultet in "Flikker from Hell" the GMA 950 just don't cut it?

I have the same problem with my 7300gt - tearing with UI2 + blending. It seems like a driver problem as there are people with less powerful GPU's experiencing no tearing with top UI. (ie 6200 and 7200LE).
