Looks somewhat promising, I'm at the hospital about to have a baby and
they apparently use a proxy server that blocks video so I can't view

support and I do not have the monetary resources to buy new equipment.
It will go on the list for when I have some money. I do already have a
NVIDIA GeForece 460 I could use for it.
