    Afternoon all.

    A while back i built an htpc for my dad. featuring the following.

    GIGABYTE H55M-UD2H, i3 550 3.2G s1156 along with 8 gig of ram.

    He wanted a blu-ray player so i got him an LG CH10LS20.AUAR 10X.

    He wants to be able to view 3d blu-ray vids now does anyone have any ideas what gpu would be best.

    Imust mention aswell that it needs to fit in a silverstone Lascala LC16

    I had suggested looking at the 6850 as per the buyers guide.

    If anyone has any better suggestions i would love to hear from you.

    As always thank you for you time and input.

    NVidia had 3D BluRay support from at least the 200 series. Not sure about AMD/ATI as it's not in the spec sheets.

    Would the integrated gfx not be enough?

    ATI have never been interested in stereoscopic 3d. Even now they say they support it and u click on a link to find where to buy and it's dead. Has to be Nvidia since they have supported it for many years long before it was re-branded "3d vision".
