Well, I have an XP1800+ and a cheap GeForce FX5200 and with NVIDIA's own
driver + RenderAccel, everything is extremely fast! Dropshadows,
transparency, everything. I can move transparent windows over the screen
as fast as I want, it doesn't slow my system down at all; the
processorload doesn't go above 20%.
