This you get in most of the dvi viewers

I think that happens w/ the dvi viewers as well (haven't ever run a 
Windows system which was quick enough for it to matter).

The problem is, it's a .dvi, you have to install extra things to view 
(say) .eps graphics, and it's not pdftex.

Bakoma TeX seems potentially the closest, but it's a time-limited demo 
one has to license. Or of course there's Scientific Workplace &c.

There is a recent setup called protext which TUG is looking for testers 
for --- it uses texnic center and seems decent enough.

Using LyX seems the best alternative to my mind... the free QT version 
for Windows runs pretty much like a Windows app.
