lets just say my computer now (my stats) are in a computer case that held a gateway from, god knows when, basically when a pentium 1 200mhz, 32mb of sdram, and 2.1 gig hd 2400rpms (i believe), 12x cd-rom, 15inch screen, and dinky little speakers cost $2,200. Man it kicked ass in the day, played doom full speed with full detail it lagged with zsnes though when i pressed fast forward! aw, anyway
About Hitman: If you've got good video-hardware and much mb's of RAM, the game will run at a very nice speed. I've seen Max Payne running on a PII 350 mhz, 256 mb ram and 32 mb video at the highest detail (no AA, 2x ani. filter) and 800x600x32 at full speed (about 35 fps).
