      i have Athlon 64 x2 but the 64-bit version of Blender would not run on it
      i installed the 32-bit version and it runs

      i'm thinking of getting a better video card but what is this?
      the '64' refers to the bit-pathway, non?

      it runs like crap with any kind of complex 3D object in it if i try to change the view-point
      choppy motion and lag following the mouse
      i don't even have any colour, lighting, or background info and even a simple linear transformation won't animate in real-time

      if i buy an expensive vid card it's going to be 64- bit but what will happen? i can't run a 64 bit version
      why?????

        yeah so my computer is just on the wrong side of being an anchor

        it doesn`t have a video card, just integrated graphics (the measliest)

        it has only one PCI-e version 1.0 slot in reduced clearance
        so there is only one measly upgrade possible but that card only costs $20
        will marginally improve performance

        it was a fun and productive morning learning more about why i have nothing to hope for

          apparently a version 2.0 PCI-e card will work in a Version 1.0 slot (presumably at reduced capacities)
          so that opens up other options

            i found a 256MB (512MB in turbo) card on clearance
            same specs as Dell specified card that would have cost 115$
            was $29.99 with a $20 mail-in rebate = 9.99$

            added 2GB of RAM $26.97

            all the fonts in the forums look different and i have a slight misalignment with too much margin on the left
            but display is somehow richer looking and easier to read
            cursor is more responsive and 'highlight and click' options are working with less misses

            total cost = 36.96$

              those sites that are just pages of GIF's are easy to browse through
              everything loads at least twice as fast (as promised)
              that's the idea

                Does anybody know of the best way to download embedded videos? I've tried everything with no luck. Thanks.
