It shouldn't be too hard to collect the hardware stats to make meaningful
CPU type, speed, amount and speed of cache, video and main memory. It shouldn't
be too hard for a program to gather the stats and submit to a server
automatically. Perhaps even make it an option of the install program, or
something that makes it super simple for 1000's of installations to submit
Then a vehix.com like site where a person can enter what they do have and see
what configurations will give them a speedy system. For instance, if have a
P2-400, 128 meg, S3 Savage 4, I would like to see what the stats would be for a
(P3-550, 128, S3), or upgrade the memory, or just the card. Wouldn't be too
hard to add in some price factors and I could figure out what the best way to
OK, that seems like a good start of a spec. Is this something that could be
given a wiki page so it can be fleshed out?
