    Hi guys.
    I have 70Mb download speed, an Athlon 3800+ processor, GT7600 graphics card, and yet I STILL experience the most dreadful slowdown/break up when watching streamed video. Downloaded video is absolutely fine. But Youtube, for example, if I so much as move my mouse or click on another window, is almost unwatchable/unlistenable. The irony is that the first couple of days the fibreoptic broadband was installed, I was watching HD streamed effortlessly on the same PC. I can now, wirelessly do so without any similar problem, with my laptop using the same router (the PC is a wired connection).

    I am using Google Chrome, Windows XP. I have 3 gig of Ram. Anything else you might need to know?
    Very frustrating.
    Thanks for your interest.
