I need a desktop computer for everyday use (safar, ical,etc) as well as to convert 15-25gb video files using handbrake or Toast. I'll also do some light gaming in windows I've been reading Mroogle for the past day and have my choices down to the following three setups. 08' 3.0 or 3.2 Octo Refurb 09' 2.26 Octo 09' 2.93 Quad I'm kinda leaning towards to Quad but am worried about my ability to use my computer for other applications if I'm converting a movie with handbrake/toast. Keep in mind this is all for personal use, so I'm not worried about saving time unless its greater than 20 minutes per file. Thoughts recommendations welcomed.
