How do I make iTunes on Windows XP stop stuttering?

HD video stutters, as if iTunes either can't feed video fast enough from the hard drive, or can't uncompress it fast enough to display on-screen. It gets worse as the program progresses.
Per Apple's help document, I have enabled DMA on the hard drive and tried toggling DirectX preferences in QuickTime.
I have an ATI All-in-Wonder 600X that I updated the drivers for. It is plugged into an PCI Express 16x slot.
The box is running a Pentium M 2.1 GHz with 2 GB of RAM.
As much as I hate this awful operating system, I'd like to use this Windows XP box to feed HD video. What settings do I enable or hardware do I need to add to reliably play HD video through this box? Thanks for your advice.
