Guys, I have posted a similar question regarding encoding rates on PC's. the answers did not really help. When converting say DVD to IPOD, I would actually like to continue using the PC for other things, like checking mail, surfing the net etc etc. When encoding at present, my PC does not allow any of this to happen as the encoding takes up all the CPU useage.
So, what specs are out there, that will allw me to continue doing things on a PC.
The author or others must have some specs on what toye of PC's would be best suited.
I am in the hunt for a new PC, any ideas would be most useful.
