I'm asking which amd processor would I need in order to safely do VC-1 in
software... I currently run dual core 4400+, which i KNOW is not enough.
I also have AM2 motherboards, not AM2+, hence the specification in the
question.  I cannot buy an AM3 or a core2 chip and put it in my AM2
motherboard, so it's really irrelivant what AM2+/3 or core2 chip can do it
