for dvd's...the R7500 should do nicely.
not only does it play dvd's well...it has respectable gaming performance as well.
i wouldnt recommend a high end card for you because you just dont need one.
the geforce2 ti has about the same gaming performance as the R7500....but the R7500 has superior dvd playback than the geforce2 ti.
i think its a toss up between the R7500 (should be under $140) and the geforce2 ti (around $120).
