I just bought a digital camera (Nikon CP800) to play with.  Great toy
(thanks to the $400 eTrade rebate from MicroCenter). However, gimp is
quite slow with 1600x1200 images on a 200MHz PPro and crawls on my
166MHz Alpha (both w/RedHat 5.1).

My question is what is the minimal machine configuration for Gimp to
work reasonably fast?  What CPU, how much RAM, what video card (to
drive a 21" Hitachi at 1600x1200)?  Does it make a big difference if
my home (where gimpswap resides) is local instead of NFS mounted?
