I had read that if a group is flying online, the common denominator is the slowest computer. What would be considered fast enough to play online without dragging down the persons flying the targets?

Perhaps even nore important than the speed of the computer is the speed of the connection. Even though the two go hand in hand, I have seen guys with ultra-fast machines having trouble because their connection speeds are poor.

You are almost right DBond you need a good connection and a good PC

there's 3 case almost IMO similar :
Good PC + Good Com = OK

The following should be ok too
Bad PC + Extremly Good Com
Extremly Good PC + Bad Com

But Bad PC + Bad Com => it's the worst case
