    Hi all,
    I have eventually got MCE 2005 installed on my Via ME6000 HTPC system. I am not too impressed with the speed so i may want to upgrade the motherboard as I have been using Xlobby on Win2k in the past for music only.

    I have a nice setup of 15" touchscreen, Silverstone case, 512M memory and 80G disk. The system is as good as silent but now I have MCE its running a bit slow.

    So I can watch DVD's and display them on my TV can I use the power of a better video card to 'hardware' decode my DVD's? I'm also not too impressed with the speed of the menu's so I guess a faster processor is needed.

    Whats the best way forward, better graphics card which has dvd decoding on-board as well as a mega fast ~2GHz processor?

    Any help or suggestions welcome.
