    I am thinking about purchasing a new mobo and chip but I am not for sure what I wanna get.. AMD or Intel?!! Everyone is saying Intel but I don't know what chip would be good to get.. Any ideas?!?1 Basically I want to use it to rip videos from DVD's and be able to shrink them down or edit them.. Or take videos from my Tivo and do editing on that as well... I hate LAG!!!

    it all depends on your setup, what hardware are you running now?

    If I recall correctly the AMD 64 beat out Intel even in the video encoding catagory. So if I were you I would be going with that. It might be a while yet, but when the video editing programs support 64 bit they will fly too.

    If you have a good system in general, editing vid wont be that much of a problem. I mean some componets make it a little easier but Im guessing you dont want to build a system that is strictly used for vid editing. I have a 2.4 ghz intel p4 w/ a gig of 3200 ram, and I can rip, edit dvd's just fine. I also havea canon digtal vid camera i can rip vids from and edit and that works fine as well.

    People flip out out proc speeds on encoding and processing but a good sytem for a casual person that isnt doing it for their job can use a non exp system to do the job just about as well for lots of $$$ less.
