My System Specs

Default

done my man, look in the specs! life is at a different level in 2P world : I transcoded my gf's DVD collection, around 120 discs, handbrake was going at like 6 times faster than real-time, around 150fps. I was ripping the discs during the day, put them in the queue and processing them by night. And, I am even like at the base of the pyramid, there are 2P systems way more powerful than mine. I am contemplating building another 2P system this time with some quad core xeons, based on a mobo of an HP XW6400, socket 771, but the heatsinks have some skyrocketing prices : 50$ for heatsink and fan together, I think this time I would be much better with a core i7, even from the first generation.
