Guys, I am looking at getting a new PC very shortly. Would like to gear the PC around getting very good/high encoding rates as I tend to backup all the disks I buy and also convert them to IPOD for watching while on the move.
What sort of rates/speeds are good. My current machine seems to encode at around 50 to 60 fps, but not sure if this is lousy, OK, or great.
Any ideas of a good machine spec so I can optimise these processes. I figure this would be the best place to ask, as we are all doing various processes regarding backing up, converting.
