Hello,
My name is Jeffrey and I own a 3 year old Alienware- 51 rig with the following:
• ATX 650 Watt power supply
• Asus-P5ND2 SLI motherboard (4 Serial ATA connectors)
• Pentium 4 - 3.8 Ghz w/Hyperthreading
• Nforce 4 SLI chipset
• 4 GB Dual channel PC-5300 DDR2 non-ECC ram/8GB expandable
• Windows 7(64-bit) OS
• (1)XFX Geforce GTX 285 video card 1GB GDDR3,PCI express 2.0 SLI ready
• Viewsonic VX2265/Nvidia 3d glasses kit
• 800 Mhz Fsb
• Panasonic Internal bluray(sata)
• WD 1TB SATA Harddrive
Look, I just spent an enormous amount of money upgrading my Alienware rig so that I can play 3d video games and watch 3d movies. I know an average amount about what I am doing and I am hopeful that you wil have some kind words of wisdom. Will this system work(in my mind it looks fast enough) or was this an impulsive decision on my part? I also ran Nvidia’s 3D upgrade software and it revealed that at minimum requirements, I only need to upgrade my graphics card from Geforce 7800GTX to one of their 3D cards(Geforce GTX 285).

Hmm... 64bit O.S... Pentium4's are not much good with 64bit O.S...

I don't see why it wouldn't play as long as you had a video player that off loaded the video processing to the gpu.
