    Here's a good place for info on lcd hookup. After i read this I looked in my junk pile and found 4 video cards with the vesa connector. It's only 256 colors but it's too cheap to ignore- Here's the thread for the vesa connector. Read through it, it gets good after the crappy translation work. Just have to keep digging

    For dvds, anything under a 32MB nvidia based will die in slow motion like results, unless you use hardware rendering.

    For divx those will play fine on just about anything... with some very rare exceptions due to bad encoding in the first place.

    I've played some divx on my system, it has a CT 69000 2 meg LCD controller. The image quality is ok, not perfect but it's definitly watchable. It's a little grainy but it doesn't have any frame rate problems. I don't think the LCD I'm using is up to it, when I hook a CRT up the image is really nice. This is with an 800 pentium 3 based system with 256 megs of pc133

    Getting back to the VESA header, I've seen these headers on video cards as new as an nVidia 32 meg TNT, my radeon 64 vivo has a place for a vesa header but it's not soldered in. Keep in mind that you may only get 256 colors.
