Look at the image itself, and around the edges of the image where it turns to player-created borders.
The bottom's bottom right naturally mixes with the black borders, while the top doesn't.


I don't know about that. If it says it supports a res >1080p, then it works. That's all.
I don't see the difference. lol

Open each image in a different tab and go back and forth between them.

edit: Also, I forgot to mention an Intel IGP works too.
edit2: Maybe this will make it clearer:

In TVs, 16 is 100% black and 235 is 100% white.
In PCs, 0 is 100% black and 255 is 100% white.

When you get a 16-235 video and assume that 0 is 100% black, the video's 100% black is a bit whiter than black.

Looks at the windows media requirements, I think they are fairly good ones. I've tried on a 64mb card, you really need 128mb to play 1080p video.

Did the card say it could play 1080p?
Also, did it not play at all or just play smoothly?
It's kinda like companies marketing the 8400GS for gaming... it games, but horribly.

Also, OP: as for playing BD, AnyDVD HD will decode BD on the fly so you can use whichever player you want, but you'll probably need the Cyberlink player for the menus and stuff.

Yeah, it will play with less, but it will be choppy.

I would go with an ATI card. The 3850 is a great card and it has unified video decoder on the card.

That works. Why bother with the 3470, though?

They're both black... I'm not seeing a difference.

One is clearly brighter than the other... your LCD screen might be making it evil. Like I said before, put them in different tabs and move them to the first two, then use ctrl+1/2 to switch between them quickly.

Here's an anime comparison. The first (from the left) video had levels conversion done in the video itself, though the guy who did it messed up so dark scenes lost a lot of detail.

This goes to show that the extra white doesn't just look weird in borders, but the video itself looks much better. So much for "The Way It's Meant To Be Played"...
