Then consider hookup with HDMI plus know about the bluray player software costs. If you can find a bundle of drive and software. Do that!

At present I use my pc to watch DVD`s & downloaded films to view on 40inch Sony Bravia,the result is quite impressive, good quality.
I`am just about to put a Blu Ray drive in my Pc and intend to play straight on to tv.
My dilema is choice of grahics card for Blu Ray play back on tv, I dont relay play high end games so I need a good card suited to Blu Ray on 40 inch tv.
Cards considered Asus 9800GTX 512mb & 8800GTX 768mb.
Probably second hand budget
You often find it's a gaming card. More oomph is required.
And don't write off the need for BLURAY PLAYER SOFTWARE. A friend couldn't believe this until they got the drive, the new card and then they discovered they still had to pony up another 100 for the software. Look for bundled bluray player software.
Thanks for info.
I already have Cyberlink Ultra winging its way to me, which plays blu ray discs apparently.
I will try with existing card when I purchase a drive just in case it is capable of blu ray playback.
If not I will continue to search for best option, probably between 9800GTX 512mb & 8800GTX 768mb.
Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly
Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
