I have a nearly identical setup (same card and CPU.) The only 
difference is that I do use DVI. I have the same problems with 
playback as you, but only when something else is going on (like a 
transcoding or commflag job).

I intend to update to a later version of SVN soon, to try out the 
recently-added interlace filters. They may be more efficient.
