    Are you serious Dr. peter??? 256 MB of ram to offset a 4MB wallpaper?

    100 icons and 4 meg backround files haven't been an issue since 2 meg vid cards, and even back then the difference was only somewhat noticable.

    Btw, 'render' is not the right term to use when discussing a simple wallpaper. 'display' is more correct. The word Render is used to describe the work done to process something that does not yet exist in its final form. Like a movie (Toy Story) or a 3D game.

    Thank you all for your help, but i think that my computer could use another 256 mb of rdram cause of my win xp-pro.
    It would increase overall performance don't you think?
