780G performance

I just built my first HTPC last weekend, so i'm semi new to this. Question is: does the 780G provide true blue ray play back as good as a acual blue ray player. Im watching "blueray rips" not acual blueray dvd's and im noticing alittle jittery playback (maybe lower fps the blueray player)with possible darker then suppose to be dark areas(however i am watching 300, pretty dark movie).

I did increase my video memory in bios to 256mb

I realize my motherboard supports hybrid crossfire, but only compatible with low-end vid cards
Would I get true or better h264 codec playback if i purchased a ati radeon video card 512mb-1gb with hdmi out and ditched the onboard graphics.
