I wouldn't even worry about this issue for another 8-12 months. Longhorn beta isn't coming out until sometime during late Q1 - Q2 in 2005.
That's like three processors and two technology changes away. Who knows we all might be running 128-bit processors and 64X PCI Express Video cards but the time Longhorn is released.
I wonder if Longhorn will be released before Half-Life 2 or Doom III. Hahahahahaha!!!
