Hi Guys

I have just built a pc of the following spec :

Coolermaster storm scout
Asus P7P55D - PRO
Intel i5-750
Coolermaster 212 +
4gb G.skil ddr3
XFX ATI 4890 1gb x2 crossfire
Coolermaster silent pro 700w psu
Windows 7 64bit
WD Velociraptor 80gb
Seagate Barracuda 500g 7200.12
Hitachi 1tb

Will this be adequate to playback 1080p HD content to a 40" lcd tv.

Any improvements to be made.

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.

Probably overkill- Understatement of the century.

If you are not going to play any games you may want to consider selling your HD 4890s and drop in a HD 5570.

Cool, I am playing games as well. 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.

Size doesn't matter. It's resolution that counts.

yeah, overkill for movies and plenty fast for gaming

btw, my HTPC has the IGP HD3300 and it plays back blurays just fine
