My 9400GT doesn't stutter with OSD or subtitle, no matter the resolution.
That's using either a discrete 9400GT card, or a 9400 integrated GPU

Forgot to mention another card , if you can still find it that works
great : the 8600GT fanless, either with 256MB or 512MB.
I get Advanced 2X working with any content with those cards.
