Ever since I discovered that my video card (Geforce GTX 8800) was unsupported by VDPAU, I have been looking for a replacement that DOES support it well.

I started at NewEgg, their two highest rated cards (in my price range) are the GTX 460 and GTX 470.


Before buying, I thought I should check on the cards' performance with VDPAU.

By sheer irony, both cards are reported to have issues with with VDPAU and KDE's Window Compositing. (which I use)

(Both reports can be found by Googling those model numbers and "VDPAU")



So after encountering such unfortunate situation, I sought the wisdom of this board.


Can someone please recommend a Nvidia video card which...

- works well with VDPAU
- costs under $400
- has at least 1 GB of VRAM
- is made by a reliable brand (such as EVGA)



Thank you in advance, for your time.
