Re: Do I need to upgrade to watch Blu-ray movies?
yeah those 1.6 atom proc's can play it but not at native res and certainly with NOTHING in the background.. you're much better off investing in a newer card that supports hd decoding (or whatever) so the cpu doesn't do it as the cpu does enough already and the gpu is idle for the most part in windows (not in gaming) as you will get NO stuttering.
A notice to EVERYONE who has posted here with a computer problem, I highly encourage you to keep current with the forums, even if it's browsing for 10-15 minutes during lunch, or before you go to bed at night. There are many things that you can learn and apply to future issues. My goal is to help people get to a point where they can use their own knowledge to help themselves, and others.
