Default What would you do?

So here are my options......

I can get a second video card (PCI) and use an HDMI/S video or DVI out to a small 19'' - 22'' LCD tv and put it next to my monitors, and use it strictly for videos, tv shows and movies.

Or,

I can buy a net book and just use can external hard drive and watch things on my 37'' LCD TV which is not next to my next.

Current starting to watch 'Lost' and I have 5 seasons that need to get watched. I kind of want another small TV, but I also want a net book. So

Not exactly an option, I gotta say I didnt think about that tho. I suppose I could get a long enough S video. My current one is just BARELY out of reach.

But even then, it would be across the floor and in the way of things. I kind of want one or the other.

What? Use a DVI to HDMI converter and get 1080i/p Depending on your tele.
