Well, I'm basically showing it the sharp-end of an AMD 3200XP with 1GB 
dual-channel and a 128Mb GeFarce FX5800 Ultra-Leaf-Blower and hoping for the 
best.  ;-)

I'm also driving a 21" screen @ 1600x1200x32bpp so it does flog its guts out 
to hold 15-20fps on approach to London Heathrow at night. (even w/o the 
'enhanced' lighting)

At any other time (no runway lights in sight) I can expect 100fps or more - 
rarely dipping under 50fps when there are many buildings etc in sight.
