Hi Robert:

Turn off the online DRC, or at least be more selective about what you enable
the on-line DRC for - this should improve your performance. Also, the
autosave takes a little while every 15 inutes or so - you can increase the
time interval for that.

I run it on a PIII-500, and the performance is more than adequate for me.
(Also, it's stable, efficient and productive).

Cheers,
