I have the sg300-52MP supporting 18 1080p 3MP IP cameras. Seems to do the job just fine, no lag perfect picture. As a matter of fact, the pc hardware couldn't handle the stream so I had to drop the quality down. Apparently with full resolution I need a i7 with 16GB of memory and a dedicated video card with 1GB of memory at the min to be able to watch all of the cameras, no lag with that beast.

When you say apparently, Is that the actual case? Is that actually what hardware they recommend? I would have thought that it was an IP stream then the Video Card wouldn't matter a great deal (Like that anyway) What Camera's are you using? I have been tasked something which seems particularly interesting to me to get my teeth into but its not something I have done before.

well, the calculator says that I need it, so I did it and got the results I was looking for, which is the apparently part. I didn't have a ton of memory, cpus, and video cards to play with so I stuck with the manufacturer recommendations based on the calculator..which is why the apparently, perhaps if I had a plethora of hardware at my disposal I could actually play with different configs to see if it would work the same or better with lesser hardware. I tried with a core 2 when it said I need a i7 and the results were very poor. Didn't have an i3 or i5 laying around so I went for an i7 in the $800 range.
