Hey, i am just wondering if my celeron 600 overclocked to 855 will be fast enough to play dvd's using only software decoding with a voodoo 3 3000? and 128 mb ram? thanks

It's fast enough at it's default clock speed, as long as you don't perform heavy multitasking while the DVD is playing.

What DVD software are you going to use?
