Yea, just get any retail CD and use Winamp to rip it and just select the "FLAC" file type and let it rip. Doesn't take too long.

vlc is quite good all in one player and plays most of the formats(audio/video) out there
now about flac there are few things to consider.....
not many people are that sensitive that they can make out the difference between a high bitrate mp3 and flac.....
secondly u need a pretty good set of speakers and pretty good sound card to actually appreciate the flac quality(considering u r quite sensitive).....
and yes flac's are humongous in size so if u can't notice any change over ur mp3's then its not wise to waste ur disk space.......

I'm running a Xonar DG with ATH-M40fs and I can easily notice the difference between FLAC and iTunes MP3. I got my brother to put them on and he doesn't even know what FLAC is and he thought it sounded amazing...then he refused to give back my headphones...

It depends on the file but that sounds right. MP3s are around 320 max. So you got double
