I was wondering what everyone was using for watching DVD's on their PC's. The computer I use to watch DVD's on consists of a PIII 800, ATI 64MB graphics card, 512MB of RAM, 19" trinitron flat screen monitor, and Altec Lansing's thin-profile 3-piece speakers.

AMD Athlon 750 (fast processor, awesome price), Matrox G400 32megs DH (the best 2D you can get), 128 megs of RAM (more would be overkill for what I do), 17' digital and 14' HP (I only use the digital for DVDs, but having a dual display is usefull... and the HP was free ) and Sony speakers with Sony sub (soon to be replaced by the Creative Labs Cambridge DTT2500 Digital with DD5.1 decoder for real Dolby 5.1 sound!)

Can I ask you all what you think or your respective systems for watching DVD's? Are you happy with how they play DVD's?

Did you ever see Spinal Tap?

On topic...Celeron 333 (not overclocked - too chicken), Voodoo3 2000, 96MB ram, OEM soundcard, and Altec ACS-500 w/ sub. Yep, it's a little ji-ji-jittery, which is why I mostly use the HT.
