Is this PC good enough to watch 1080p movies?

Hi,

I just got a new 60" TV and my old Asus Eee box is lagging when I try to watch 1080p movies on it. So I think it's time to upgrade.

I don't want to build my own PC because I don't know much about hardware and I don't want to do all the research.

I would be happy with an ugly looking desktop because it will be hidden behind a panel for most of the time.

I would use the PC for 3 things: movies, web browsing and youtube videos.

This one is very affordable to me and I could use it as a starting point:

It has HDMI and plenty of storage for me. The question is: is it enough to play 1080p movies without stuttering?

Thanks in advance!

Yes, that system runs the A8-5500 with the HD 7560D graphics. That should be plenty powerful enough for 1080p video playback.
