I watch a lot of movies on my computer, being a member of Netflix and using their on-line viewing capability, as well as using the DVD movies I get, one at a time, in the mail.

Sorry this is so long but wanted to provide all the info I could. Will this monitor permit me to watch Blu-Ray DVD's in high definition? Thanks for your assistance.

With the proper software,they may be playable,but they won't be
full 1080p playback.
You need an HDCP 1080p compatalbe monitor and video card for true 1080p
HD playback.
HDCP has the high definiton copy protection decryption hardware needed to
decode the movies.
Using amazon video on demand,I had to have them turn off their COPPS
setting to get videos to display and play because I don't have HDCP compatable hardware.

Most of what your are speaking of sounds like a foreign language to me. Sorry. I've built computers for many years but not real knowledgeable about the multimedia aspect of it. I have an Nvidia GT 275 video card is my computer, which, although not new, is not an oldie/goldy either. Will that card work OK with what I am wanting to do? Guess I need a new monitor if I want the true HD effect. What specifically, to a multimedia idiot, should I be looking for?

Yes,your video card is HDCP compatable.
Usually,when looking for a monitor,look for one
that is 1080p and is listed as HDCP compatable.
To be fully HDCP compatable,all components in the video chain
need to be compatable.
You have the video card and the drive.
The native resolution of a 1080p monitor is 1920x1080.
Notice this one says hdcp support in the details.
Also has an hdmi connection.
