I have a 8600GT w/ 256 MB that i've been using with using with VDPAU since
the first patches were out months ago.  I was very successfully using this
card with my c2q for months prior to the .22 release.  I was using .21 w/
JYA's patches at the time, and it was working flawlessly.  I believe that I
was using driver 180.29 at the time (it worked i didn't touch it).

Since then I've upgraded to .22, and tried newer drivers, and I cannot get
anything to work as well as i had before.

I know that my problem is i only have 256 MB.  I see the errors in the fe
log telling me that I don't have enough memory to create vdpau context.

I've tried turning a few things on/off, deint, TripleBuffer, etc, but could
not make a reasonable difference.

Is there anything that I can do to use this card anymore??
If i was to ditch it, what is the best vdpau standalone card (with a
reasonable power draw..  ie not the card that I have in my gaming desktop)
