Windows Vista can turn your PC into a full blown entertainment center, allowing you to watch video, play games and listen to your music. Vista has a built in media center option that allows the user to play sound to either the speakers or a personal headphone. A user can change the audio playback from the internal headphone amplifier or a computer speaker by simply changing an option in the control panel.
