If I watch anything from movies to YouTube video clips I get a lot of stop/start buffering.
I need to upgrade my graphics card but find the advice very conflicting/confusing.
I don't play games so it's just something to help when watching movies, football etc online.
My board is a foxconn 45GM/45CM
2.8 Gig Pentium D processor
4Gig Ram
I currently have an Intel 82945G express chip family

Sounds more like it's caused by slow downloading than your gfx card. Try hitting the "pause" button for a minute or so to allow the video to load, then let the video buffer (load). After it loads completely (or most of the way), you can hit the play button and it should smooth out. Let us know if this helps! :thumbsup:

Thanks Steve,
That's actually what I do already. I assumed this was part of the problem.
If this is something that happens even with better hardware I guess I'll just have to put up with it.
