Whether 16 bit is quicker or not might depend on how the GPU and DAC handle 16bit. Sometimes they can process two or four 16bit graphics "words" simultaneously, sometimes they don't. Depends on the architecture. I've met some cards that are faster in 24bit than 16.

Some likely culprits for sudden slowdowns.

MS's fastfind reindexing the files

Thought for the day:
If natives of Panama are Panamanians
and if natives of the Bahamas are Bahamanians...
...Shouldn't natives of Canada be Canadanians?
Or alternatively, Bermuda=Bermudans, Grenada=Grenadans, Canada=Canadans????
