Ok... I want to know if there is anyway a computer can leech of another, like be totally connected and share everything(Disk space, Memory, video card, ect.). The main reason is my Gateway computer has a 3VooDoo graphics card and it cant play the game Rose Online so i was wondering if that is possible. Also if it isnt possible is there anyway i can share just the video card?

Any help is appreciated.

not in any kind of reasonable way...

that is a ton of bandwith to push across a network--sound and video.

For example, I CAN run diablo on my server downstairs in a remote connection....it runs, I can see it on my screen, I can even kill a few undead mages, but the framerate is atrocious
