Hi all
I want to prepare a pc for watching 3d blue ray movies no gaming, the display is 51" plasma with active shutter glasses.
Resolution 1365 x 768
Picture Engine 3D HyperReal Engine
600Hz Subfield Motion , and having HDMI 1.4 3D Auto Setting and HDMI 1.4 A / Return Ch. Support.
Please tell me a configuration that should be cost effective.
I will go for extra graphics card, so i think not top of the line product requires for mother board and processor.(I am not very sure- as my main purpose is to waching movies only)
#pc can be capable to convert 2D to 3D with good result.
#pc can accomodate one sound card (PCI slot - i already have sound blaster live)
#pc can accomodate a tv tuner card that can convert simple media content into high definition and if available such as card which can also convert 2d content into 3 (like MSI al in one tv tuner card)
#pc should have one extra PCI slot.

As I will use my existing 5.1 sound card but the speakers and woofer is not available with me. Though I have one set of 5.1 speaker and woofer but that is without amplifier. What device i need to use to use these speakers.

Please suggest good configuration which should be compatible.
Blue ray drive
Graphics card
Power (SMPS watt) cabinet
Wireless devices for controlling windows media center (if we can replace the mouse and key bord with remote)

"SMPS watt"

Are you from India? We need to know your location, how much you're willing to spend, CPU preference (AMD or Intel), type of case (tower, desktop, HTPC), etc. And you probably don't need to re-use your soundblaster, especially if it's an older one. Integrated sound is very good these days.

SMPS is the power unit of the cabinet, how much power the pc will consume or required to energise the pc. Right now my existing pc having power unit of 400 watts.
Yes I am from India. Delhi.
25K is my upper limit if it could be less, then it is good.
Type of case i will prfer desktop.
Ok if my old sound card is not useful, but still the issue is, for my existing speaker and woofer is very good but they can be used only with the samsung dvd player, if i need to use that with the pc there is no amplifier for connecting the speakers and woofer.
AMD/INTEL no issue the result should be good.
