Media center pc.. my old rig? or need of an update?
 
agp mobo s939..

athlon 3200+

768mb ram

9550se 128mb

dvd drive

Would this work for a rig to watch dvds on my 40" widescreen? I should beef up the video card right? new mobo and a pcie card i would think?....

To play movies on a tv is no sweat for a computer. I have a old p4 rig with a fx 5200 and it is plenty

of course its fine, cept if your doing some high def or blu ray play back might want something more better.

Now about the picture quality...

That might present a problem. Your pc runs at a higher resolution then a dvd normally does... so that stretches the pixels... It will depend on what the resolution the tv will run at.
