If you're playing content usable through VDPAU, you're only going to be 
sending a few MB/s, not a problem for PCI.  The other UI bits are not 
active enough to cause any problems wither.  Any HD content that can't 
be played through VDPAU will likely require too much bandwidth to 
realistically be used.
