Can I get rid of my DXR3 card now?

Hey Folks,

My Geforce4 TI4400 is on it's way and I'm hoping that it's ability to decode DVDs (MPEG4) will be good enough that I can get rid of my hardware decoder(DXR3). I've kept it because it does a noticably better job of playing movies.... crisper, no stutters etc than my Geforce2 GTS Pro did. I tried the software DVD route when I bought my Geforce2 GTS Pro and noticed a bit drop in quality. Has the Geforce line finally eclipsed the need for a separate DVD hardware decoder card or should I just hang onto it?


Regards,

Wrath

even with a GF4 I still find a card made solely for DVD decoding does a much better job when it comes to actual picture quality. I don't have any skipping problems or such, but I notice my GF4 renders some scenes too light or dark and if I adjust the gamma and such manually it just doesn't look natural.
