It usually takes me 45 min (mid-quality) to convert a 700MB movie this is my computer specification:
Pentium 4 3.0GHZ
2 GB DDR PC3200 memory
500 GB 7200 RPM Hard Drive
Windows XP 32bit Home Edition

I’m planing to upgrade to:
Core 2 Quad 2.40 GHZ
8 GB DDR2 memory
same hard drive
Windows XP 64bit edition

How much it will decrease the time to convert the same 700MB movie (avi file 1 hour 43 min.)?

Half the time 20 min?
If you need more details let me know

Welcome to the forum :slight_smile:

I think that with a quad-core CPU like the Intel Q9650 the time will be even shorter :bigsmile:

Maybe also some more RAM can help, but I have no idea if your mainboard can support that CPU (probably not :doh:)

What’s the rush?
Get a DVD/Divx/Xvid,AVI capable player , and you won’t have to wait to convert…You can’t beat that…:wink:
