Sorry, Nothing really. It's all because of how FMD handles on the fly labeling/hatching. I could benefit from a faster machine, but I'm stuck with this one until Spring of 2009 when the scheduled replacement happens.
Currently, I'm on a Celeron 2.8 GHZ 1 GIG RAM with on board Intel graphics. I should probably pull the "I need a better machine because I do CAD and Database" card. ALthough the thing handles CAD graphics without much complaint. I haven't tested this theory, but a better graphics card may yield better output-my chief complaint.
