Default Live Streaming football

Does anyone know what sort of specs i'd need to be able to watch the stream with a good quality picture. At the moment I have a Athlon 2000 (1.6ghz), 1Gig of pc133, with 64 meg onboard graphics. Basically an olf sh,i,ty system. With my current computer I can have a good picture if i have the picture really small, but as soon as i enlarge it the picture gets worse, obviously.

I've been looking at a Laptop in curry's discounted to 399. Its a Intel core 2 duo, the 1.6 I think, 1gig of DDR2, with over 200meg shared grahics 950 GMA. All I'll be doing is surfing and watching footy on it, does anyone know if i'll be able to have picture full screen and have a decent picture?

Alternatively I've seen a Turion64 x2 with similar specs but is cheaper, will that do the job just as good?

I would think that ur connection would matter more than the specs of ur comp.

As for the laptop- go with the core 2- much more efficient and powerful (and thats coming from an AMD fanboy...)
