Exactly what I was thinking..... Truthfully, on my system, most of these
old titles run even faster (with no decernable frame-loss) with the
I know about the dedicated versus delegated game hardware issues (hell, I
wrote an essay on the subject comparing PC's to Jeeps and VG Consoles to
Race Cars [race cars are great for racing, but lousy for towing a payload

want the same.... was just hoping someone had figured something better...
