Any video card that can run BD playback will have the ability to plug into your monitor, as your monitor has a DVI input, and videocards that can play BD will most likely have a DVI output (or require a simple converter). Sound will require a different connection, either your PC speakers or a direct connection to your onboard sound connections.

Agreed, you should be fine considering your monitor is HDCP compliant.
