I have a gt 220 graphics card with 512mb ddr3 and processor p4 800mhz bus 3.0ghz, as well as 1.5gb 400mhz ddr ram (dual channel) and I can't run full hd on x264, as well as some others...

I heard this is mainly because the gpu doesn't do anything and the processor gets all used up trying to decode the video, since you need a pretty fast processor to be able to handle x264 at 1080p.. but is there any way to switch over some work to the gpu so it is less choppy? Because right now the image often freezes for about 5 seconds before moving on and rarely is the image running smoothly, and the audio/video is off.

So how can I switch some work over to the gpu? And if I can't is there any way to pre-decode the video file so I can watch it smoothly for later? Basically what I'm saying is what is the easiest way to watch x264 1080p video without choppiness with my specs...

Try running chkdsk /r on your system...and then defragging.

If the video files are on a different partition than C:, do the same for that partition.
