  jimmynewhtpc 20:08 09 Feb 2009

hello all this is my first post, just a bit of info needed about my new htpc project... right got a power supply, case (micro atx), HDD, bluray drive, AMD 64x2 4400+ and biostar motherboard with 2gb DDR2. So the question is will this be sufficient for playing HD from Blu ray etc through my HD tv? also whats the best way to connect to LCD tv because board has no HDMI connector. so will i need a different graphics card with HDMI o/p?? any help would be great thanks!!
