i was thinking of buying a new graphics card for my computer, because i would like to watch high definition movies but my card can't run them properly (it's an nvidia, dont know the model)
so anyhow i see there's a hype about Ati 5970. can it run hd videos? also i've noticed there's a version called HD5970 and just 5970, can the first one play videos and the second can't?

Thanks for your help in advance

Na. all 5970s are the same.

But if all you want is to watch videos in high definition and not do any gaming, just grab an HD5670. $500 cheaper, lol, it'll suit your needs just fine.

Even HD5450 is enough for videos if no gaming is involved. It is all based as well on the rest of your system specs.

Hello and welcome to the forums :) 
HD 5970 and 5970 are the same,and yes it can play HD videos fine but as posters above said,there is no need to get such a card if you just want to play movies.
There are lots of cheaper cards that can play HD videos fine
