Would a core 2 e5200 cut the mustard 3d playback

post #1 of 25

Hi all going through my cupboard today I came across a core 2 e5200 with 4 gig of ram now if I was to buy say a nvidia 430 graphics card. would that cut the mustard with 3d play back on power DVD 12 . As I am sick of having to unplug my monitor from my pc with a duel screen setup to watch 3d

A core2 should be able to play back video fine with an appropriate video card.

Thanks fella. So you reckon with a nvidia 430 it should all be fine then

I don't see why not. A core2 is not modern but it is not horrible. With a video card it should handle playback fine.

I use a Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 and an nVidia GTX 460 for my 3d playback. It works very well. I upgraded the processor from a dual core and it struggled on 1080p 3D playback.

Well I was just about to order the graphics card then I read that last post. Guko what duel core chip did you have trouble playing 3d content with mate

I have the same cpu, and in the past, I've had trouble playing high bit rate videos (like blu-rays) on the CPU alone, although it was borderline so YMMV. With a discrete GPU with hardware acceleration on you will be perfectly fine.

Why do you have to unplug the other monitor? Does it make the video stutter or does it just not play 3D that way? Just wondering if it's an HDMI issue or just the hardware. In a lot of cases if a HDMI chain has a non 3D monitor in the chain, it won't do 3D on any of the monitors.

Yeah you could be right if you are looking to keep price down for an older system. The lower end version of the 28nm graphics chips aren't out yet, you could also look at the HD6450, but if I remember right you need the 64bit ram version

The saying (idiom) goes like this: Cut the Muster, not Cut the Mustard. The modern sense of the idiom is to succeed; to have the ability to do something; to come up to expectations.

This etymology seems plausible at first. Its proponents often trace it to the American Civil War. We do have the analogous expression “to pass muster,” which probably first suggested this alternative; but although the origins of “cut the mustard” are somewhat obscure, the latter is definitely the form used in all sorts of writing throughout the twentieth century. Common sense would suggest that a person cutting a muster is not someone being selected as fit, but someone eliminating the unfit.

Sorry but muster means to pass inspection whereas mustard is a plant. If you are inspecting parts for a computer build it is "cut or pass muster". If you ar making a sandwich it is "pass the mustard".

It is the best.. No vinegar. Just mustard and water with a few other minor spices.
