Ok... I need advice from the MR community today. I need a machine that can convert video files to h.264 as quick as possible. I have limited myself to these two: A mac pro (a quad 2.66 or quad 2.93) OR A Hackintosh (Core i7) I'm looking to mainly use the machine for encoding. I hate having my iMac here and when I try to use FFMPEGx + Handbrake + Toast running at the same time... my computer is like a SLUG! My concern is being able to save money the best I can. I want to know if a Core i7 hackintosh gets the job done quick and with minimal hassles. Anyone with suggestions?
