64 Bit Processors are really fast!

I just bought me a new computer.  64-bit processor.  Dang, it's really fast! :D Now I'll finally be able to play all those SGDK games that never worked on my slow computer. :)

I wonder how many sprites you can have active on that before it slows down.

About 173 goombas, as it turns out.

Seeing as how the original Pacman was an arcade game not made for personal computers, no.  A port of the game with an emulator...yes.  Yes I can. ;)

Wow! 64-bit processor! SGDK games must be dancing all over the screen. Do you have a monster graphics card to match it?

Not as such.  Just a built in graphics card that couldn't run pong for now.  But I hope to get a really good one some time.  Unfortunately, I couldn't take the card from my old computer as it's AGP and my new computer requires a PCI-E.
