I have a Ubuntu media PC. It's an older PC. I can watch most 720p quality videos without problems. However, some scenes (especially water scenes) get really choppy. Large squares of images seems to get stuck on the screen. This happens occasionally on lower definition videos too. 1080 is out of the question.
What I would like to know is what is the most important thing I should upgrade? I would think video card and then RAM. Specifically, for high-def videos, what is the most important piece of hardware?
Here are my current specs:
- Motherboard: Intel DeskTop Board D945GTP
- CPU: Pentium(R) D CPU 2.80GHz
- RAM: 1GB 533MHz
- Video card: ASUStek RV370 [Radeon X300SE]
My TV has HDMI and VGA ports. I am currently watching through the VGA port.
Thought I should add the fact that I use VLC.
