I'm running an AMD64 3200+ as well for HD playback.  All my output is scaled 
to 720p.  I'm running SVN from a few days ago.  That said I wouldn't 
recommend a 3200 without XvMC as it's just barely keeping up (20-25% idle).  
  Also, sometimes after a commskip the playback becomes choppy.  With XvMC I 
get 40% idle and no choppiness after skips.
