    TBH, although I'm all for using AMD processors, if you're only using a single core processor, then the Pentium 4 CPUs are usually better at video encoding than their equivalent Athlon 64s. If you're using dual cores though, the AMDs are better.

    As for what you need, well the answer is as much as you can afford really. What's your budget?

    The title of this thread made me smirk at first. As though it were one man's response to another when he said, "Hey man, what's that processor doing on your back!?!?"
