I am curious if the system requirements will differ much between 2.5 and 3. I am totally stoked about watercolors and hope they work just slick as anything. I am always frustrated with Painter's watercolors due to the extreme lag sometimes after a stroke, and I have never really been able to do a nice wash in Painter, so I am very hopeful for the new watercolors. I really enjoy Artrage and it really doesn't seem to tax my system like other programs do. So, I was just curious if there would be a difference, and of course a little anxious like everyone else.
P.S. My system:
AMD Quad core
8 Gig Ram
ATI 512 MB Graphics card
Windows 7 (couldn't stand Vista, and can't afford a Mac)
I wouldn't think it would slow down much using a program, but Painter puts a hurt on it depending on the type of medium I am using.
