Downgrade? - Page 2

post #11 of 17
You need 256mb max on the video card to play blu ray movies lol. I would get the cheapest card you can find that supports video acceleration, I think probably something like the radeon 2600.

Thanks for reminding me, I need HDMI for my tv.

That card has the same 80 stream processors as the 5450 and uses more power and runs hotter i'd stick with the 5450

I found a 4350 for $30, is that good enough?

Does it support hardware video acceleration? That's really the only thing you need.

Looks like it does. Here's a little blurp I found on the internet:
"AMD states that while both the 4550 and 4350 support full hardware Blu-ray decode acceleration, the 4350 may not be able to fully accelerate a high bitrate 2nd stream for picture in picture scenarios."

So it can't play two 1080p videos at once, but you should be fine with just the one . lol
