I have a geforce 3, pIII 800MHz 128 mb computer and still the third game programming tutorial is a little slow. Could anybody say why that is? Thanx in advance

It may be due to the fact that there are a TON of particles on the screen, and each particle has blending enabled, and is the system is doing some heavy math calculations when it creates each particle... But, thats just a guess.
