Once you mentioned "core" it triggered my memory.  I bought the 90nm version
of the 3200+ for my myth machine.  I don't know the formal name for it
(irrelevant), but I do know that it's the better version: lower voltage,
cooler operating temps, at the same speed.  Maybe that's why it "can" do
HDTV. :)  Still 90% cpu on one core of a 4400+ seems way excessive.
