___I did not test the ATI Radeon 8500 directly but it was tested and it appears to have worked fine. Under Windows 2000/XP, some of the HW acceleration features are not enabled but PQ was not degraded because of it. Hopefully a DirectX 8.1a release will help in the performance category but nothing that most any low end and properly built > 500 MHz HTPC of today cannot handle.
