I also need suggestions on upgrading to Blue-Ray. I Have a Q6600 CPU. Just got an LG 3D playback internal drive. I need to upgrade my video card. Looking for one to run HDMI through my Onkyo receiver. I don't Have 3D TV yet but maybe in the future. Any suggestions on my best options?

Shoot, didn't really want to spend that much. I was thinking around the 250 range.

If you are not going to play demanding games, the GT 430 is perfect for Blu-ray. If you do play games: NVIDIA GT 240 or ATI HD 5670. All these three cards will run perfectly with your PSU.

This one is the best GT 430:

Let me know if you play games and if you do, then which games.

Yeah no Games, strickly Blue-ray. I like the price of the 430. I'll probably go with that one. With that one I won't have to upgrade my power supply either.
