In the next few months, I hope to be picking up a Piano 3200 from my local dealer. After checking out AVSForum, it seems the image quality is much better with HTPC than with a progressive scan stand-alone DVD player....soooo, I'm going to use my exisiting PC and just transform that into a HTPC, I hope. I have a T-Bird 950 processor Will have 512MB PC-133 RAM today Radeon 8500 - although, for some reason it runs slower than my friend's first generation Radeon. I can't even play GTA3, it's so choppy (lowest resolution)...but that's a whole new can of worms. What DVD player for my PC would you guys recommend? What else could improve my soon-to-be HTPC?
