    HD films look great on here, I'm on a CRT. They're very clear and crisp.

    depending of what you consider HD. 1080p won't ever go fine on the pc you have there. 720p MAY go fine. when watching a movie open task manager and look at how much cpu % is the player using

    Your processor is comparable of an AMD AthlonXP 1800+. That is more than likely why it is slow on HD Films.

    Right Click on desktop, properties, settings, and drag the slider to 1152*864. I recommend 1280*1024, its my favourite resolution. Its not bad at all to do. Wont smoke up because of a new screen resolution.

    Thanks for the nice comment Were always happy to help at Pureoverclock

    Did you move the slider to the left or the right?

    Left = Bigger
    Right = Smaller

    My recommendations for screen sizes are

    13/14" CRT = 800*600 85Hz
    15" CRT = 1024*768 85Hz
    15" LCD = 1024*768 Default Refresh Rate
    17" CRT = 1024*768 85Hz
    17" LCD = 1280*1024 Default Refresh Rate
    19" CRT = 1280*1024 85Hz
    19" LCD = 1280*1024 Default Refresh Rate
    20" LCD = 1600*1200 Default Refresh Rate
    21/22" CRT = 1600*1200 85Hz
    21/22" LCD = 1600*1200 Default Refresh Rate
