Jumped on the foxconn barebone deal from Newegg and now have an 1155 board to play with. I have an extra Radeon 5450 and am trying to figure out if its worth using with a G530, will the 5450 help at all? And I believe the 5000 series CAN play 3d but needs the CPU for decoding. Will I be ok with the 5450 and the G530 for 3d play back?
Another option is the just return the 5450 and get an Ivy Bridge which I know will play 3d. Problem is the foxconn mobo dosent support ivy bridge without them flashing the bios (or them sending a new bios chip, not sure)
