Although I doubt any milkdrop preset will be able to challenge a modern GPU.
Just because milkdrop uses a flat texture mesh, this does not mean it cannot cause a lot of GPU load. In fact it is easy to overload any GPU.
I usually designed my presets to run at a framerate of minimum 30fps on my old GeForce 7600. Sometimes that was a challenge, and meant I had to reduce complexity or remove extra effects.
My new PC has a cheap AMD on-board GPU, however somewhat more powerful, so I might pack additional effects into the presets. I won't, because I want my presets to run smoothly also on average machines. It's no good to make presets that stutter along at 5fps except if run on an extreme gaming PC.
