    Do you think this is powerful enough?

    I'm planning on putting together my system and was wondering if a PIII 733mhz and this mobo would be powerful enough for smooth DVD playback.

    So...what do you all think?

    The answer to the question of "Is it powerful enough?" is almost always YES.

    Anything above about 700mhz seems to perform all In Car Entertainment functions just fine....2.4 gighz is just a digital small block chevy...ie WAY OVERKILL and inefficient. But still cool nonetheless.

    I figured the processor would be good. I was more concerned with the onboard video of the mobo. But if it's working for other people, then hopefully....
