I have an Asus MB with an integrated graphics chipset. I have a 2.8Ghz Socket 478 Celeron and 512MB of RAM. I connect the integrated VGA output to my monitor. Here is the link to my motherboard: http://www.asus.com/products4.aspx?l1=3&l2=12&l3=42&model=199&modelmenu=1
When I run my media player (WinAmp) and play video at nearly full-screen, my CPU usage is 50-100%. I'm experiencing some stutters and some heat problems because of this. The file format I am using is Divx. I am running a clean machine with 26 running processes and 0% usage at idle.
This might be a silly question, but will adding a Video Card reduce the processor usage?
