Both of the following scenarios use IMTOO DVD Ripper Untimate 5.
I have an HP Workstation X4000 running Xp Pro SP3. I used CCleaner to make sure only antivirus and videocard software run on startup. It's has Dual Zeon's (2 processors) 1.8 gig, 2 gig ram, IDE harddrive, Benq dvd drive and 128meg video card. I ripped a video to mpg-2 @ 16fps.
I installed DVD Ripper 5 on my test machine which is a Dell Optiplex 620 running Windows 7RC1. It also only has antivirus running on startup. It has a P4Duo 3.2 Gig (1 processor), 2 gig ram, 128 meg video, NEC (factory) DVD, SATA harddrive. This machine ripped the same DVD @ 37fps.
I am willing to upgrade things in the HP if possible but I have no idea where the best money is spent.
Thanks in advance!!!!
