insane for running 2.4ghz? granted it could have been partly my video card
(nvidia 8600gt these days)
but I couldnt even do 720p HD playback on my old 2.4ghz machine.
Had to go to a 3.0ghz core 2 duo (and xvmc) to play HD content.
but I can as well playback, record and transcode all at the same time now.
