Ok, to add to my update previously, my time on this test is

:18 seconds 8 bit.
:21 seconds 16 bit

And to answer my own questions about the ram, adobe has some great info on thier web regarding xp 64, more than 4 gigs ram, etc. Very interesting reading. Also some speed tips if you have 2 plus gigs.

There were no programs running in the background.

My studio will shortly be receiving a Mac Pro Quad Xeon Core 3.0Ghz W/ 8GB ram, ATI X1900 Card, 1 Terabyte storage. I will run the test again once we get it.

Re: Photoshop speed test

8bit - 23 seconds

AMD X2 4600+ Dual CPU w 2 GB PC3200 (Nforce4 SLI Chipset).
I also had TMPGENC encoding a video in the background, but it was set to low priority, so it should only have affected the outcome by a few seconds at most.
