    Video card to play DVDs

    In a few months I hope to build a computer with a Duron 650 or 700 and I'll need an AGP video card. I don't do any gaming currently but would like to be able to play a F1 racing game, not caring if the game video is the absolute best as long as it runs.
    More important to me is photo editing capability and DVD movie playback. Before I get a card and find it is wrong for DVD, can someone tell me what I need? Do I always need a second card for DVD movie playback or do current cards incorporate that capability? And if I need a second card for DVD, would one of the 32mb nVidia TNT2 M64 cards work as my primary card? (Samsung 753DF 17" mon, maybe a 19" later) Needs to work in Win98SE and Linux.

    as far as i've known, ATI has been the leader on stuff like this. With their video out capabilites, you can hook your dvd image up to a big tv!
