I mean, which matters most? Both? I am working a lot more lately, just stuck sitting in an office all day. I need to finish ripping my DVD collection, so I figure I would do it on my office PC. At home, on my Windows PC, HB encodes quick, like 90fps or something (I have a Q6600, 4GB ram, 768MB 8800GTX, etc.). On my MBP, it will go at about 30fps. But my office PC, wow, its slow as heck. Its a 2.66ghz C2D 3mb L2 cache 1066FSB, 2GB ram, but the video card sucks (X3100 or whatever that onboard Intel POS is), and it encodes at about 15fps. Is that normal? I thought it should at least match the MBP. Or do I need to have something on it checked? Seems to run fine, has no BS software installed, same as my home PC really. I should mention its a Dell Vostro 200. Any suggestions? I have about 15 DVD's left to do, but I might not bother until I can do it at home since its so much quicker.
