I am considering buying a DVD kit from creative and I was wondering a couple of things.  First will I still be able to use my current video card.  Second I would like to know how big the picture will be on a 16 inch monitor.  I would also like to know if I should keep my current cdrom drive.  I may have some other questions but I will make the points very high if somebody is willing to answer questions that may come up in the next couple of days.  If your answers are good the points will go up.
