Hi, i would like to connect via hdmi my pc to my full hd tv. I have old components (pentium4 3 gb and 2gb ram) and I'm wondering if a new video card can manage the playback of full hd video (blu ray iso 1:1). Does the cpu count in this case or it's all on the gpu? Which card should I choose?
That mobo has both an AGP and a PCIe x16 (runs at x4 speed) slots. This system also uses an old Via chipset. Video playback on a 1080p HDTV is going to be poor, at best, even with a stronger GPU. Adding a PCIe video card like a HD6570 would help, but I think the money would be better spent on upgrading the entire system to something far more capable.
