Hi all,

I'm trying to get some feedback on my proposed hardware for a Single 
System Node client. For a small conference room (6-10 people, 1 large 

Looking at a Dell Precision 370 P4 2.8GHz 1MB/800, 1GB 533MHz DDR2 RAM, 
128MB Dual DVI/VGA nVidia Quadro video card.
And plan to add 2 camera's w/ 2 video capture cards.

Does anyone see the need for a dual processor system? or any other types 
of hardware upgrades.

I've used a "test" system, which was a Dell Dimension, P4 2.4 GHz 512MB 
RAM, onboard video. Same conference room in question And I was able to 
support the past SC2004 lectures and that was like 20+ video streams.

Any feedback on possible needs for a dual processing system would be 
greatly appreciated.

Thank you all for your time,
