VIA boards are not without their problems in terms of performance and there's very little you can do about it; VIA stuff is just generally low performance. I'm using one right now and it sucks.. live TV was very skippy. However I did come across one useful trick - this only works because I'm using a normal CRT TV, but I switched off deinterlacing in the playback options, and CPU usage went down from 75% to 20%.

This is overly negative. Plenty of people have or have had (myself
included) smooth running via epia based systems.
