Will this cpu and system handle blu ray?

Well a while back i built this little htpc in an ITX case, and just now do i have the money to get windows 7 so its actually going to be up and running soon. Well i got Windows 7 home premium 64 bit, and i want to know if it will be enough for blu ray with the following specs:

Intel Celeron e3300 2.5 GHz
Intel X4500HD
2 Gb ddr3 1333 RAM
500GB HDD
Lite on 4x blu ray drive

all on a 1920 x 1080 display.

PS: this is just a side question- i got powerdvd 8 with the lite on drive. Does powerdvd8 offer good picture quality?

    Yes. Just barely. If you have issues though, your CPU is fine, just get a Radeon 5550 for some good GPU acceleration for your blu-ray.

    Ok thanks for the quick response. If i do notice lag i could do what you said and get a 5550, they're cheap enough and come in low profile so its all good :D
