On our smaller node I have both audio and video on one linux machine 
running both AG1.0 and AG 2.0 without problem so far. However the Display is on win 2000 with one 
projector and the Control is on win 98. I have noticed that the Gentner on the control 
machine consumes a lot of resources. 
Budget wise I don't know much about :)
