I'd hate to scoop this up and find out that 1080p playback sucks. I'm a bit confused about the minimum requirements for CPU/video card parings. I'm sure both are a factor, but, again, I'm not sure what the min reqs are for these two components. Thanks in advance.
I should be able to get it on Craigslist for less than $150. I'm looking for the cheapest solution possible. In a nutshell, I want to be able to play 1080p video from a file (such as mts from my 1080p camcorder) or flash/web-based 1080p video. Blueray playback is not all that important, since I already have a separate bluray player. It would be nice if the video card had an HDMI output, but I'm guessing I can just buy a DVI to HDMI converter instead.
Any advice? Again, price is important. I'm hooking this up to my TV & I plan on buying a wireles keybaord with onboard trackball or something to that effect.
