I am trying to upgrade my system to play Blue Ray,1080p streaming videos, Netflix HD, etc
My current configuration is old machine AMD E-450 (X1430G) connected to 55 inch LG TV via Yamaha htr-4065
I am not able to decide which processor/motherboard should I upgrade to AMD A10 6800K or A8 6600K or FX 6350.
I don't know which of these processor would be able to play HD video or should I be also looking at adding a graphics card and if which one.
Thank you for your advise.
For playing local video, yes, but it might not be good for some streaming and Netflix, which are not always able to use hardware acceleration. I have an AMD 450 with Radeon HD 6320, similar to the OP, and have had no problems playing 1080p local LAN files or in streaming 720p content from the internet. Have not tried 1080p streaming from the internet, or Netflix.
I use Windows 7. I am also having issues playing 720p and using flash..
I am trying a different approach as well I have am old e machines sitting around I am going to add a cheaper graphics card and see if that works out..
