Does your 3D adapter support 800x600 32bit GL acceleration? For grins, 
try 24 and 16 and see if you notice a difference. I've got a GeForce2 MX 
400 and tend to work with 16bit though 24bit seems to work fine... One 
day I hope to have a G3Ti, but if your app is going to be used by a lot 
of regular joes like myself with older 3D cards, you may want to explore 
accomodating lower bitdepths for better performance...
