Application #2: Viewing DVD Movies

If you have a DVD drive in your PC, you can use your computer to watch DVD movies. To optimize your viewing experience, of course, you'll want a big monitor (and maybe one of those nifty new widescreen models from Sony and other manufacturers) and a sound system designed for surround sound. Even a low-cost PC can do the trick, when it's equipped with the right upgrades.

Upgrade Checklist for DVD Viewing

DVD drive (see Chapter 5, “Optical Tricks: Upgrading CD and DVD Drives”)

Large CRT or LCD monitor—possibly a widescreen (16:9) model (see Chapter 9)

Sound card with digital output (see Chapter 10, “Pet Sounds: Upgrading Sound Cards and Speakers”)

Surround sound speaker system (see Chapter 10)
