    I have an 8 core 2.66 macpro with 5 gigs of ram. I need to capture 3-4 dv tapes and would like to be more productive when going through this 3-4 hour process. Is there any danger of dropping frames (or any other ill effect) of running other apps (browser, quicken, etc - not photoshop or other intensive apps)?

    Yeah, you'll be good to go. I always multitask while capturing. AIM, internet, iweb. I think I even played a game of wc3 while capturing (though I could be wrong, haha).
    Oh, I got a 2.66 quad MP
