    I couldn't afford a whole new dedicated system for mp, so i turned over my webserver, with a celeron 1 ghz. Runs smoothly, TV/video/music playback only.

    I'm running on a Athlon 750MHz.
    Mostly smooth, but with the latest release I've noticed some
    performance problems watching recorded tv.
    Usually a restart of MP solves the problem.

    I am a bit concerned about cpu usage when not using MP.
    0.1.2.0 eats 50% CPU just running the gui.

    might have to do with directX 9 support etc. but it still feels
    strange that it consumes so much cpu doing virtually nothing.

    so, that counts as a 2 Ghz?
    running hdtv smooth with onboard graphics.
