LOL 6970 is way overkill for BD playback--high-end card (for its time) with large power requirements (when gaming). But yes, it will do the BD/media playback fine. It's just a question if you want...

Oh right it still could be the PSU that is causing the no-POST problems and not the RAM. You really should just pick up a low-end good-brand PSU (like a Corsair CX or EVGA B series) as you haven't...

-GTX 550 is perfectly fine for playing back BD/h264/1080p content. Only question would be if OpenElec (which I have zero experience with myself) has drivers to support it properly.

It's certainly possible; used to do it all the time with older versions of PDVD and TMT back when I had a non-HDMI receiver.

Auction clearly says it's a passive adapter so definitely won't be converting a DP signal (of any sort) to HDMI 2.0. The only way you get HDMI 2.0 out of that is if the card supports HDMI 2.0 to...

Why do you need to build a whole new HTPC just for 3D? What do you have now for an HTPC? If it's not 3D capable but still not too old, wouldn't a simple videocard upgrade suffice for 3D?
