Re: Found $530 worth of Savings Bonds!
I wouldn't go for a computer these days without having a dedicated gpu, even for what you want to accomplish. Blu-ray playback without a gpu can get very choppy. If I were you, I'd go with this rig:
The AMD Athalon64 X2 6000+ (the one you saw on newegg)
I would trust a computer like this, but as you can see from my sig I'm a gamer and I would not be satisfied with a pc like this. You can get better parts than these, but I'm trying to save you dough. I'm sure this setup will be able to play Bluray perfectly and be a faster than average computer. Hope this helps!
