The hardware needed depends a lot on what the HD is encoded in. I mean
I can playback 1080i HD MPEG2 on my 1.8GHz core 2 laptop streamed over
wireless with no problem at all. My 2.4 (single core) and 2.6 Ghz dual
core opterons played it back fine as well and the q9550 has no problem
at all with it.
