Hello Rory,

  I am guessing that your machine will not be up to the task of doing
anything serious with GEM.  It is probably powerful enough to play with a
few triangles, but will be fairly slow if you turn on texturing.  The
graphics card is _extremely_ important...probably more so than the CPU.

  If you want any advice or recommendations, just let me know.

Later, Mark
