    I have:

    MB Dual Core 1.8ghz with 1GB
    Dual 1.8 G5 with 2GB RAM and 256MBVRAM.

    Which would be faster when processing imovie files in iDVD?

    I ask because im not sure if VRAM makes a difference with the processing?

    If that is the case I obviously will use the G5. However if its pure CPU power needed I guess the MB is the way to go with it being slightly faster?

    FYI the movie is 90 minutes long (its actually a soccer match) :D

    If you have them both, why not try it on both and see for yourself? Find some short 1 minute clip, and compare how long it takes to render in iDVD.

    VRAM will not matter, only CPU will matter for this.
