Actually if you go to the d/l section for purevideo, you can d/l a 30 day trial free, all the information is on the site. Also for HD, you'll need a lcd that supports hd, or use an hdtv.

For HD you just need a monitor that supports the sources output resolution... it doesn't have to be an LCD or HDTV.

My Monitor plays 1080p files perfectly and I can watch DVDs at 480 (usually upscale to 720).

It will play the files but won't be true HD unless your lcd supports that native resolution(s).

It doesn't need to be an LCD... It can be ANY display that supports the resolution...

Yes... but it was assumed that's what he's using considering 90% of people use lcd/crt instead of tv's for display.

Pure Video the software is purely for MPEG-2 content and it has NO HD optimisations for processing MPEG-2 beyond what your broadcasters offer, which are all really SD MPEG-2 features. Don't waste your time with the PureVideo software as any of the 8x.xx or 9x.xx series forceware series of drivers support DxVA (DirectX Video Acceleration, like D3D for Video) and this exposes all of the PV features via the DxVA interface. If used via VMR, then all advanced HD pre and post processing features (for MPEG 1/2/4, not just MPEG2) get used AUTOMATICALLY, based on the quality/format of the video that's being played and the media player in question (Windows Media Player 8+ in "high quality mode" on the graphics acceleration setting or Media Player Classic being driven via VMR9 renderless and the VMR interface checkbox checked, there are other players such as Zplayer that can also do this, but only Windows Media Player and Media Player Classic support DVD decoding and IFO parsing out of the box).
