What is your Nvidia card? You are only going to lose H.265 decoding
on it if it is a more recent one that actually does H.265 hardware
decoding. In my case, I have an Nvidia GT220, so it does not do H.265
anyway. But my CPU (AMD FX-4100 3.6 GHz quad core) is more than
capable enough, so H.265 is fine.
