My single core Athlon64 3200 (and integrated 6200 GFX) plays x264 720p and 1080p without dropping frames no problem, using CoreAVC. Actual uncompressed Blu-Ray discs would be a problem though I'm sure.
But I'd agree that you might as well get a better system if you're buying now. I saw a dual core Athlon64 3800 for £35 delivered the other day.
