Arch isn't for the faint of heart. However, it sounds like you know your way around an O/S, so you may be okay with it. Call it the DIY Linux distro.

I have had problems during upgrades. ...

Waterhead just mentioned ArchLinux. I think you're in ArchLinux territory at that point. My problems were with audio, and how entrenched PulseAudio was with Ubuntu based distros. So, I moved to...

Caveat emptor!!!

Just because it can do it, doesn't mean it works all that well.

I still maintain that the best solution is still Nvidia with VDPAU.

Not done though. What we need are plugins for our favorite media programs.

A XBMC, and MythTV plugin would be awesome. Something that could be mapped easily for a remote.

I haven't gotten it to work properly yet. I open up a page with Flash and the CPU immediately starts to ramp up. As far as I know, you have to manually set flags to get it to work, but that's still...

All PCIe video cards are backward compatible. A 3.0 will work in a 1.0 slot. I have an old 1.0 slot as well, and the catch is not present but a newer card goes in and works just fine.

I've found the XFCE and KDE versions of Mint to be "glitchy". Weird things happening and stuff. Mint is best when used with Mate or Cinnamon.
