    Computer hardware and cyber trainers?

    Am researching software which will feedback scenery synchronized to my indoor trainer.

    The cheapest seems to be CycleFX, under $150, will connect with any trainer you already have. Its 3D rendered, so a good display card is probably in order.

    So here's my question: Imagic, Computrainter, and RealAxiom all use 2D DVD movies, is that right? So with these three, it matters not if I have a typical laptop with lots of RAM, up to date dual core Intel cpu, 7200 rpm disk drive, but with a non replaceable ridiculously poor vid card? 'Cause nothing will be in 3D, right? Or am I all wrong here ) ?

    The computrainer requires a DirectX 7.0 compatible or higher video card with 32 megs of ram (on the card, not the computer). The graphics aren't too demanding so you should be fine, I know people that are using some pretty old computers with their computrainers.
    I may be fat but I'm slow enough to make up for it.

    Tacx Fortius requires ALOT of video memory. I'm pretty sure the imagic does as well.
