any modern pc is good enough. eg athlon or p4 2 gig.
a soundblaster live card for less than 30 quid is excellent.
I recommend any nVidia card with a tv out, such as geforce 2,3 or 4 or fx5200.
The reason is that there is some excellent free software on, specifically for managing desktops.
e.g I have winamp to play the mp3/cdg and I have set it so that the words come up on the t.vs, and the 'computery' stuff stays on my monitor.
it works very well, (well it did on saturday anyway!! he he he), and contrary to what I had heard in the past, you do NOT need an expensive 'dual head' graphics card.
oh....I still have a border around my words, and cannot set it to full screen for some reason, so any help on this would be appreciated.
good luck djdavem.

oh..... p.s
I was using normal cd players for the inbetween bits, but I am very tempted by this pcdj program.
could anybody respond as to whether it is possible to jump between karaoke and music or track to track as easy as it is with a 'real' mixer desk with faders.
The reason I ask is that everything normally seems really fiddly to me with other programs I have used.
eg just fading from one track to another is a real pain, and as for fading from a media player song to a winamp karaoke track......forget it !! I haven't got three hands.

I believe there are compatibility issues with PCDJ and some makes of laptop, I might be mistaken. Could anyone post a sticky with regards to this, playing cdg on laptop and outputting to TV display. Is it possible to have dual display, i.e. on laptop screen and tv output? Any help would be appreciated.
