    What is the resource usage like and how (well) does it handle heavy p2p and online gaming?

    Hello,

    From my experience - I admit, limited and short-lived:

    Does inflict some sluggishness onto the system. Memory and cpu usage goes up with heavy p2p, with about 50MB memory and 15-25% cpu spikes. Not too bad, but not perfect either.

    Haven't gamed with it.

    Mrk

    Hello,
    Please note there can be a significant difference between idle and heavy networking.

    If I remember right, ram usage was about 26-30mb and pretty consistent, and I believe there were some probs with heavy p2p and lots of connections causing the GUI to become extremely unresponsive, and it generally not handling p2p very well. Also, I must say that Sunbelt does not appear to update or support the product very well, updates are far and few between.
