I used to be able to play 720p video files with my stock video card, but after upgrading to a card with more options (able to use two monitors) i have been unable to play 720p videos smoothly. they usually play but in slow motion. is my set up wrong? can anyone help me figure out the problem. thanks.

Your 865 is much much better then the FX5500. You really did a downgrade.

really is it really that much worse? how did you come up to that conclusion?

is it possible to use both GPU at the same time? i only changed to the FX5500 because i wanted to connect my computer to the tv as well as the monitor. is there a way i can connect my PC to the integrated intel GPU and still use the TV out slot of the FX5500? how do i go about doing that?

The FX5500 was released in 2006, and the 865 Chipset was released in 2008 usually newer technologies are far better and faster. I am not sure if you can use both at the same time.
