using a 1600x900 res monitor with intel pentium d 3.0 ghz processor,xfx 1gb 9500gt ddr2,2gb ddr2 800mhz ram,500gb seagate 3gb/s hdd
the problem is the 1080p movie is getting stuck during playback what will be the problem cpu or gpu or monitor ?

Both your CPU and GPU need to be upgraded. They are both contributing to the lag.

but my friend has an i3 2100 processor wit just integrated graphics card ..the movies plays with no lag ihope 9500gt is faster than intel hd 2000

Sandybridge cores are over 50% faster than pentium D core(s).

check task manager. if the cpu is maxed then i say it's time for you to upgrade. you monitor won't cause the lag. I wouldn't overlook your HDD. Make sure it's defragged.

IMO, the cheapest route :
- buy second hand radeon hd4550 or geforce gt220 (minimum, correct me if i'm wrong... )
- use playback software that make use of gpu acceleration

PS: I hope your mobo has pciex16 slot

i'm using vlc media player for the playback..the cpu usage is 50-80% and memory usage is 1.25gb when playing the movie but when the movie is closed the cpu usage is 3%and memory usage goes to 1.08gb i don't know about gpu testing...

It's a bit of both, well actually more in the CPU area. GPU Acceleration can be good too, but you won't be able to take advantage of it with a weak CPU!

if i'm not mistaken, i remember vlc has setting to make use of gpu acceleration.

I think you just haven't set the hardware acceleration settings correctly, indicated by 50-80% CPU usage. The CPU is still doing the decoding. Should be around 15-20% for old CPU and less than 10% in newer ones. Even P4 can do 1080p .264 with no lag when paired with a GPU offloading the video.

No Idea on VLC. I use CCCP MPC.

Took from my old thread:

After you install CCCP media player classic. Enable DXVA by going:

View>options>internal filters and select everything with (DXVA) and apply

Then, on playback>output, select

evr custom pres, directx9 and directx9 for directshow video, realmedia video and quicktime video

Ok and restart MPC and play video.

yes the cpu usage is down to 10-30% but the movies still gets lag not much like cpu decoding but noticeable lag..even the movie gets blurry when i try to seek ..

- update driver
- try gom, mpc etc

Sounds like it could be 1 of 2 things
1) spyware/rootkit even having a good av is not enough these days rootkits hide malware from av the only real way to check is to use a boot cd like kaspersky rescue cd then run malwarebytes.

2) bad sectors or bad drivers try updating all of your drivers DriverMax check your hard drive using hddscan.

You don't need a powerful cpu to play 1080p video most video streamers use an atom or sigma cpu.

boxee box- 1.2 GHz Intel Atom CPU with a PowerVR SGX535 Integrated graphics processor.
WD Live TV 2 -Sigma SMP8655 Secure Media Processor.

If your watching 1080p best to use XBMC, Plex, or boxee i prefer boxee because its very easy to use but XBMC has more support.
If you use boxee or xbmc look up app repositories and look at navi-x.
I have a boxee box it plays 1080p and takes load off my computer and allows me to stream 1080p movies from my pc to tv.

You will need codecs if you use any of the media center software so make sure you download ffdshow
