I am buying Intel D2700MUD.
And want to use it as HTPC
I am not sure about its DirectX version and 1080p HD playback/ Blu ray playback capability.
I will use it with 2GB ram and Window 7 Professional.

MY main reason for this mobo is that it has 10 watt TDP.

the D2700 comes with GMA3650 GPU integrated. the GMA3650 apparently supports DX9 and is capable of DXVA.
source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Comparison_of_Intel_graphics_processing_units

but if you spend a few minutes googling around you'll find GMA (including 3650) doesn't always seem to produce satisfactory results with HD video playback.

if you want a low power HTPC look into AMD fusion APU or Atom & ION combo instead (my HTPC is an AMD E350 system, it plays HD video flawlessly).
