can an nvidia 7150 onboard play blu-ray?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I am looking into building a HTPC for my family that can play blu-ray movies for relatively cheap (around $600) and so i was wondering, if i got this motherboard, would it be able to display blu-ray movies? i know it has HDCP, but i'm just wondering about the processing power.

I don't thing it'll be able too, i read a review of the new amd mother board with integrated gfx over at bit tech, and when it was compared to other mb's with integrated, all the others couldn't play at full 1080p, so no i doubt it'll play. Oh remember you'll need purevideo decoder to use your gfx card to watch movies and a player which supports it like powerdvd

I have the motherboard in question and although I don't run Blu-Ray, I did some searching and believe I have an answer for you. The onboard GPU might do it as long as you have a fast CPU to make up for the slack. Even IF this method worked, it would not be ideal. Best bet is to pick up a 2400Pro or similar with onboard HDMI. This will take the rendering duties away from the CPU and provide nice smooth 1080p playback.
