What is the absolute minimum cpu for BD playback
 
What is the absolute minimum cpu required for Blu-Ray playback in a HDCP with a compliant graphics card.

I feel my e6400 would be wasted.

I'm pretty sure my e4400 played my HD-DVD USB 360 **** just fine.... before I returned it,.

You can playback a BD with almost 0 CPU if you have a good VP2/3 video card. Yes, a 8800GT supports VP2 and if you get a Cyberlink player that supports PurevideoHD you are set. Don't worry about the CPU at all.

That's true. With the right video card even a P4 should be able to cope with HD-DVD/BD playback.

Yeah, I get about 3-4% CPU usage playing BluRay's. My works PC with it's Radeon 7000 series and P4 has about 70% usage just with online HD stuff.

CPU usage also will depend on codec used, MPEG2 Blu-ray uses less CPU then VC1

What are the chances with an 800mhz PIII and a pci slot 8500gt http://www.sparkle.com.tw/News/SP85_...3_PCI_EN1.html or an ati 2400HD thing.

This old article sort of answers my original question
