Is the Athlon 64 3200+ a true 64 bit processor, meaning that I should install the Centos 5.3 x86_64 packages? I know that this is an older processor, but I have quite a few of them gathering dust t... [by krazybob]

I am trying to play an HD H.264 file on my Mythbuntu box. But VLC stutters and on mplayer the audio-video goes out of sync. The file plays fine on my windows box. My cpu is underpowered for software decoding(Athlon 3200). So I was hoping to use hardware decoding. I believe my video card comes with a H.264 decoder on it(NVidia Geforece 7600 GS).
During the first reboot, the OS setup fails to load from the $Windows 2012 boot.ini menu item, and the machine resets, putting itself into an loop of continuous failed resets. The machine is an older server with AMD Athlon 64 3200+, KBM499 (VT8380) chipset, VT8237 Northbridge, Phoenix BIOS 6.00 PG, 2 GBytes single channel DDR RAM.
I'm going to be getting some new PC parts in a couple of days and I need to know if I am going to need to reinstall Ubuntu. I am currently running 12.04 Precise Pangolin Gnome on an older 64-bit OS with a Nvidia graphics card.
I have been using a Gigabyte GA-7N400S motherboard. Recently, one of the capacitors on it went bad and so I decided to buy a replacement/additional/spare board, second-hand, although I am going to re-cap the Gigabyte one.
By way of confession, and to start the discussion, I'll state right here at the top of it, that so far, F17 has pretty much been a yawn-fest here in Dan's dank lair. Admittedly I've only installed to bare metal on an older 32 biit barton core AMD Athlon(tm) XP 3200+ coupled to a 20g PATA HDD, with an Nvidia NV34 [GeForce FX 5200] vid-card, stabbed into an MSI MS-7051.
