Any improvements to be made. James More about : home theatre thestrangebrew June 28, 2010 10:03:20 PM You shouldn't have any problems pushing the 40". In fact, it's probably overkill lol. You'd slay almost every game with that setup. You're good to go. strife_1980 June 29, 2010 4:17:32 AM Probably overkill- Understatement of the century.

I have never played back HD content on a 40" screen before and didn't know if it was more or less taxing than gaming. I'll get the HDMI cable today and give it a whirl. jaguarskx June 29, 2010 7:58:26 AM Size doesn't matter. It's resolution that counts. mindless728 June 29, 2010 5:56:53 PM yeah, overkill for movies and plenty fast for gaming btw, my HTPC has the IGP HD3300 and it plays back blurays just fine Can't find your answer ?
