    I have:

    MB Dual Core 1.8ghz with 1GB
    and
    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.

    You'll find more information here at Digital Video Editing. They've tested quite a few systems.
