Some thoughts please.
I want to add a blueray drive (not burner for now) to my system as well as a 2d monitor.
According to a program I downloaded and ran all my stuff SHOULD be bluray compatible, HDCP compliant and etc.
However, I've seen that the Radeon 5700 series is specifically designed to support blu ray play with aero features of windows 7 turned on. I am just wondering if that means a blu ray will not play with my older card unless I turn aero off.
Either way, I am thinking it can't hurt to upgrade to the 5770----I am not a gamer though----but I do edit simple projects--and not in HD (yet) with Sony Vegas Pro 9.
Also my 450 watt VX Corsair has been doing the job wonderfully. This new card is supposedly very easy on the power requirements --most of the on line calcs suggest I'd be ok still with adding the card and drive.
Thanks in advance.
edit--wow I see I have a new badge...I likes...
