    Like the title says its finally time for me to upgrade my monitor to a widescreen, found one I'm going to get, now in the future if I want to run stuff with HDCP content on the PC I assume I need a HDCP compatible card too? Looking at this card http://www.clubit.com/product_detail.cfm?itemno=CA9630888 yeah I know it'll be shitty for games but the newest game I own is Age of Empires.

    yup, vid card and monitor both need to speak HDCP for protected content.
