    My problem is this: just built a new system for a friend. It should be faster than my system in all respects but it's not. During the encoding process, using Shrink, my computer encodes video at about 5k/s and the system I just built starts out fast, but then levels off at about 3.5k/s

    My System:

    Athlon XP2200+ O.C.ed to 2.02GHZ 300mhz FSB 256K L2
    512 MB PC2700

    New System:

    Athlon XP2800+ 333mhz FSB 512K L2
    512 MB PC3200

    both are using the same hard drives (DMA is on),
    both are using the VIA KT600 chipset(different MOBO's)

    Shouldn't the new system be faster? Can anyone think of a reason why it's not? I'm starting to suspect the cheap Foxconn MOBO, but I'm not sure.

    Well are the dvd drives the exact same models? Some drives rip faster than others. I would recommend the asus dvd rom drive model DVD-E616P2. very very fast reader. also in dvd shrink the more compression the longer it takes to encode.

    Good Luck
