Because of my limited budget, can I buy an Intel Celeron G3930 and save money to buy a GTX 1060 or 1070 to watch 4K movies? I'm not a gamer.
Thanks.

Love your rant... actually.


The chip goes with Shield can play 3D bluray movies, but no apps (Kodi, Plex, SPMC) can play 3D. So, it's worthless for sure.

I bought a Dell H310 controller card $45 at eBay and flashed to LSI 9211-8i IT firmware.
A fresh windows 10 recognized it automatically (not any driver needed).
Cheer.
