Unless you are certain that the openChrome driver has support (including 
XvMC-VLD support) for the graphics hardware, I would not purchase it. As 
it uses newer hardware, I doubt that there is support. Also, since 
nobody is maintaining the Mesa3D OpenGL driver for the VIA hardware, I 
doubt that there will be accelerated 3D support.
