I have an AMD 2000+ WITH 512 DDR 2100 RAM
If i buy a dvd-rom, will i be able to play movies without any decoder cards?

Actually just having a decoder software is all you need.

Sorry, but what i actually meant was a DVD-ROM drive

For example click here

or a free one (aint tried it though) click here

With that spec of computer you shouldnt have any problems...

Maximus as suggested by Powerless is good; you may need a codec installed - have a look at the maximus site.

But you will need a dvd-rom drive to read the disk; a cd-rom drive will not read it.
