I have never really got the answer on this.
Will a video card improve choppy streaming video? In this particular computer I think the net speed is fine, 3 meg line, and the smaller youtube
videos seem like they are going to play fine. But you get to a Hulu video and things get choppy, even on the smaller size. We upgraded the RAM, and
it's about 1 1/4 gigs, with shared video. It's the same on Chrome and IE. Fresh install, hard drive appears to be ok, with the amount of testing I
did. The processor should be plenty fast enough. Unless Avast is making it choppy or something?
With my home computer, I can't watch the larger size that well. It gets choppy at that point, when I reduce it down, things get better. I have a 6
meg line here.
I have heard people say that a better video card won't help, but I'm not so sure about that, since the quality of streaming video has gone up in
