I know this pc isn't built for doing anything too intensive, but i thought it should be able to stream video from youtube without too much problem, cause i have another pc that is similar and streams video just fine.

Anyway my specs are 1.7 p4, 1 gb ram, 80 gb hard drive. The video is integrated S3 prosavage sharing 32 mbs. Whenever i try to watch anything, like full episodes from FOX or just watch a video from youtube, even after i let it buffer for 30 seconds or so, the video will seems like it's in slow motion every 6 or 7 seconds.

I've tried disabling hardware acceleration, but that doesn't help at all. Any suggestions....or is it time for a new video card? Thanks.

Try allocating more memory for the video this is generally found in the bios menu. Reboot the computer and start pressing [DEL] or [F1] until you enter the bios menu. Check under the advanced tab it may be there depending on your bios manufacture. What your looking for is graphics memory allocation. You may not be able to raise it much more than it is with only 1gb of memory installed. Windows uses allot of memory it self. if you allocate more to the graphics Windows may start freezing on you.

You could give the above suggestion a try and allocate more memory for the video controller.

A better option would be to get a new video card (AGP) if your motherboard has an expansion slot for it.

I checked the BIOS and 32 mb was the highest it would go. I looked thru my bin of parts and found an old MSI 128 mb video card, so i am going to try to put then it tomorrow and see what happens.

Good, that should help free up your memory and offer better video (graphics) performance.
