Smiler: Modern NVidia and ATI graphics cards don't have complete MPEG decoders but will certainly accelerate some or nearly all of the decoding process, depending on which card you get.

The NVidia card in the Iyonix does have the ability to perform iDCT (inverse discrete cosine transform) in hardware, according to many sources I have read, although this has not been harnessed yet.
