As long as the monitor and graphics card have the necessary chip for HDCP, and they both have a DVI connection interface (not just a standard VGA connection which doesn't support HDCP) then you should be able to play HD-DVD/Blu-Ray movies on your PC and see them in HD on your monitor (Vista only though, XP doesn't support HDCP). Oh, and of course you'll need either an HD-DVD or Blu-Ray optical drive as well.
