It seems that the gt520 is better at hd flash decoding that the gt430. Does anyone know if the gt520 is able to play 1080p video smoothly and if it can have 2 monitors connected to it at the same time for a larger desktop?


Now that flash 10.3 is out for ubuntu which apparently has hardware acceleration, I just wanted to know if the gt430 graphics card would be enough to play 1080p flash files directly from the browser smoothly?

The GT520 and GT430 should be sufficiently capable of playing 1080p Flash Video. My 8800 GTS is capable, and is significantly less powerful then either of those cards.

The official recommendation for system specs from Adobe for 1080p playback on Linux are;

1.8GHz Intel Core Duo, AMD Athlon 64 X2 4200+, or faster processor 
512MB of RAM
64MB of graphics memory

In addition a list of NVidia GPUs which support hardware acceleration with Flash 10.3. I should note that this requires the proprietary NVidia driver with VDPAU.
