3 years ago I was reading yahoo info pages and came across an article saying about broadband. At that time I had an amd 388 ghz processer k7. O.K. article headlined the whole volume of a cd rom copied from usa to germany in under 17 seconds. So about 700 megs transfered to germany in about 17 seconds. If one day speed is uncapped and we end up with super sonic type speeds, will hd have to be faster than your connection speeds? Will cpu's, memory, hd's and ops be able to handle this speed? Is it a point in having speeds of light connections? I mentioned the amd processor as i don't think it would handle the fast internet connections we have now. I have a pent 4 1.545 cpu now and sometimes I don't feel ne faster than the 388.
