[AG-TECH] Specs for a 2.3 room node

I'm wondering why you want to go for a 3 computer solution?  Do you
want to run different operating systems for different functions.
As far as I can tell from personal experience and feedback on the
list, single computer (twin Xeon or twin Athlon, 2.8 GHz or above)
systems can do everything.  It's taken a time to get AG 2.3 support
for multiple stream video cards into the distribution (the original
registery fix we circulated in March was for AG 2.1.2), but for
me the ease of a single machine, single network connection, makes
a 3 machine solution look like hard work.
