Text Editor for very big file - Windows

I have some huge files I need to view with a text editor in windows. What is the best option. My favorite Notepad++ hangs. I tried gVim. It loads the file, but hangs on scrolling. I need an editor that loads progressively since some of the files cannot be fit in memory.

Although it is not the best looking application out there it definitely does what it says it can do. –  Diffuser Mar 3 '11 at 20:55

My favorite product here is V - The file viewer, which I believe is the best of its kind (20$, trial available). Portable version is also available.

I have used it to examine text files of several GB in size, but it can do much more.
