Thats one very good example you can use to help sell the idea of a multi-cpu system. The transcoding/streaming aspect. Using ffdshow you can upconvert, deinterlace, multi-filter, deblock, upsample the audio and more - essentially, you can can (for example) an SD-quality divx movie approach and/or surpass bluray quality by using a multi-cpu system to its fullest.

Bump.

Also might be selling my HT Omega Striker sound card, but I'm not sure yet. I'd like to get $95 for it.

Well, Blu-ray is exaggerating it, but I find that being a high-def junkie, DVD is painful to watch. I recently became a big fan of Star Trek: The Next Generation, and it's only available on DVD. With no high-def remaster coming for at least a decade (maybe more), it's all I have. So, ffdshow REALLY helps. I use its high-quality scaling, plus filters like sharpening, levels, noise, etc.

Depending on the brand/model of ram you have I'd be a candidate should someone want to split it up. I'd take 2x 4gb sticks...

Unfortunately, I have to sell the RAM in quad bundles, not pairs. So, if you want 4x4GB, or 4x2GB, I can do it.

Especially because 4x4GB run at 12GB instead of 16GB, as I pointed out, one of the sticks needs to be RMAed. I'll give you a nice discount for the (4x4GB) 12GB set if you're interested.
