My HP Pavillion ZV5000 has been sitting on a shelf for a few years, waiting for me to fix the power connector to the motherboard. Sez I, ooh, this might be a good Artemis box - it can run Mechwarrior 3, Mechwarrior 4, and FFXI, so it should handle Artemis just fine, right? Especially as a client.
Well, 162 Windows updates later (amazing how they pile up when it's been out of commission for 3 years), it turns out the graphics card doesn't support hardware shaders. It supports DX 9.0c, but the GeForce 440 Go has no hardware pixel shader support. Bugger. :P
