Re: AW: [linrad] Linrad on Pentium Pro?

Let me echo what Joe, KM1P, has said:

So for Linrad it will be hard to make a bad choice of "scrap" computer. Choose the quietest one!

I fully agree! In my (admittedly fairly short) experience with Linrad, I have found that differences in CPU load among the various FFT versions are usually not very significant. For a single-channel, modest bandwidth system, just about any >100 MHz computer will do.

If the experience of many others is any indication, getting everything to run properly together -- Linux, svgalib, sound I/O, etc. -- is more likely to be your problem than CPU speed.
