I don't think anything from Intel or AMD/ATi is capable of 3D blu ray playback as of yet, I know my Radeon 4890 has more than enough juice to do it but it does not work and probably never will.
Hey man just wanted to say that I'm using a HTPC for 3-D <(lol just a laugh about another post). I have been playing 3D files from 3dguy with stereoscopic player and IZ3d driver (free to anyone using ATI videocard and DLP....niceee), I have been doing 2d-3d conversion and 3D bluray with pdvd10. And gaming with IZ3D drivers. Here is my specs.
Case- Cooler Master Centurion
mobo- Biostar TA790GX 128m
Processor- AMD Phenom 3 2.4ghz
ram- 4gb (3.25 with winxp ram limitation)
Video card- HIS ATI Radeon 4890 Turbo 1gb ddr5 (this is main reason for post) does great too
Hard Drive- 750gb seagate
Power Supply- Ultra 750 pro
Opt6ical Drive- x4 BD rom
O/S- XP 32bit
Now why I quoted was just to let everyone know what I'm using to help with anybody's building purposes (I put this together for about $600 from ebay and compusa and have lots of upgrade room including ATI crossfire/PhenomII/and I believe if I go to win 7 64bit I can add upto 16gb ram). Also to let you know the ATI 4890 card works fine with 3D Bluray. I'm not having issues anyway.
One last thing though I haven't done much with the 3D gaming yet but the game I tried seem to work well (Resevoir Dogs).
