    ....that will drag a 1Ghz CPU with 64 megs of video to its knees.

    or http://makeashorterlink.com/?A58C22F35

    Check out the T-2 1080p vid. And note the suggested system requirements.
    My 1Ghz PIIIs can't muster enough power to play any of he videos on that
    page. My XP-2800 and XP-2100 with GeForce 4s (one TI-4200 64 meg and one
    TI-4400) play them all smooth as butter, but even my 1.4 Ghz T-Bird with a
    GeForce 2 ultra finds a spot or two to choke in the T-2 1080p video.

    Video is constantly being updated and improved. That is one reason two weeks
    ago I updated my processor. motherboard, and video card. I'm not going to
    spend anymore money on improvements until the Athlon 64 comes out.

    regards
