Re: sharing hardware resources over lan.

Do you know if it streams from your computer straight to your other computer, or does it go to their server first? That seems like a waste and added lag. for 10 bucks a year it may not be too bad if it streams fast enough to be playable.

p.s. thanks for the p.s.

the data transfer speed of a LAN is 100mbit/s. how does that compare to PCIe or sata connections?

hmm sata II solid state is 3Gbits/s that blows away lan transfer speeds.
