    I understand that my sound card and video card could have a cpu on board that can reduce loading time on the cpu.

    I was wondering if my hardware has this feature and how to make sure its enabled since by default windows XP may not have enabled it.

    I have a

    Windows XP
    All in wonder ati radeon 9600 pro
    Creative soundblaster audigy 2 zs

    Athlon Xp 2400+
    512 megs 2100

    yah... hardware acceleration..

    by default it is on therefore unless you have turned it off either manually or due to problems... it is still on...
