How many until slow/Stop
21 May 07
I have a intel pentium dual core 2.8ghz and a 1gb ddr2 memory. I've tried running 3 different browsers at the same time, Firefox, Internet Explorer and Opera, and I noticed that my pc began to slow down. I don't know if it was because of those applications or because I have some background application running. Like, I always have Trendmicro's Internet Security 2007 running in real time, the HP digital Imaging Monitor and I think I was also downloading some files from Azureus. I never want to run too much application until my pc hangs because it might damage my pc.

Since Azureus is a java app. it does take a lot of processing power trust me i have checked. & i dont think running heacy application damages ur PC at all it it's continuous for more then 24 hrs it may.But these new PCs are meant to be abused (i mean processing powerwise).They are just built that way. It is said tht people don't even use half the processing power their Pc offers to them!

Totally depends on the application, lightweight applications I can run like 50 or so till it begins slowing down. But in example when using Maya for rendering a set of images on how quality that application on itself is enough to slow my computer down to 0. AMD Turion 1800+, 512 DDR
