    I want to build a PC just for playing DVDs and watching TV. So what's the
    best/cheapest OS. Never dabbled in Linux. Also, what sort of video card do I
    need for my pc using an AMD XP2500, GD-7VA motherboard and 1Gb?

  6. Suddenly, Fishb8 sprang forth and uttered these pithy words:
    Why waste money on a PC for that?

    Do you want to record TV as well??
