I use an Athlon 800 desktop machine with 256M of 133MHz ram and find it to be 
barely fast enough for playing DVDs and AVIs.  So it's not a great surprise 
to me that you are having performance problems.

I think that part of the issue is optimisation of the players.  I used to find 
that Xine and Ogle performed adequately on DVDs, now they both totally suck 
and I can only get vlc to deliver OK performance (but VLC doesn't do menus 
and it's support for selecting chapters seems broken).

I should file some bug reports...
