Performance: DVD run through Vid Card, or Switch?

What I'm asking is this:

I have a DVD player with Decoder card. The card runs serrial with my Video Card so it can display to my monitor.

However I was thinking, is that ware and tare on my vid card? Should I instead run both to a Switch Box and switch back and forth from decoder card to vid card?

Also does anyone have the Creative Labs 12x with Card? It tends not to want to get out of Full Screen sometimes...damn thing takes over too, only way to get out of it is to do a reboot.

I have the Hollywood+ (exactly the same as yours but slightly cheaper) It has no wear and Tear on your Primary card, it functions like a Voodoo 1 or 2 did, ie. It draws the area that its supposed to and nothing else, IE inside the box of the DVD station. You will get NO boost from a Switch box. Its useless.

Thank you Ura...thats sort of what I though. But I have a friend who used a switch box to go to another monitor...he might have a differnent set up I guess.

If you're thinking anything like that just pass your TVout to a TV. That way you can watch movies while playing games on your monitor Anything else is just a waste of resources

Switch boxes actually degrade the image displayed on your monitor.
