If you want to run uncompressed sound tracks (up 7MBps bitrate seen so far versus the normal 448K to 1500KBps rates) some MPEG4/AVC movies will push this system to 80-100% CPU and stutter some. MPEG2 and VC-1 movies run much better, usually 20-40% with some 60% peaks. PowerDVD UI says it is not using the hardware decoder for some reason. I think it is though. Maybe some bugs to work out still?
