Dual Video Card? PCI alongside AGP

Specs: Windows, n/a
I have an X850XT agp video card in my P4 system and i'd like to know if i purchase one of the DX10 pci cards if i'll be able to play BluRay through the pci card?

I've heard it's possible to add pci video cards alongside an AGP for additional monitors, but i'd instead like to run my HD video through the PCI DX10 card and my games through the agp X850XT.

I don't want to upgrade the X850XT because it's a good card and i don't need any better. And i'd prefer not to change video cards and drivers each time i want to watch HD video. I can't overclock or upgrade my Northwood either =(

Sparkle have 8 and 9 series PCI cards that apparently support "NVIDIA PureVideo HD technology" which may not match AMD's UVD but i don't wanna use a s---ty HD2400 card.

I've also read on reviews (newegg) that some people have great success with HD video on these pci cards, while some others don't notice the difference between with and without offloading...?

Thanks in advance.

Regards, Ben
