    Talking Video Editing Questions

    Does anybody here knows how to speedup my video transcoding/convertion?

    What devices do I need to have?

    Um... a faster processor and more RAM, and maybe even a faster hardrive and/or RAID 0 setup....

    Did you have something else in mind?

    7200rpm hardrives (3pc)
    P4 3.2E processor (not OC)
    2 pcs Geil 512mb DDR400 /w heatsink (Do you think I should add 1gb more?)
    This would have a big effect in transcoding mpegs?

    Thanks!

    In fact you'd be well served selling those two sticks that you already have and buying 2 x 1GB modules otherwise you may suffer slower timings due to all four memory slots being used (4 single sided modules usually work very well but 4 double sided modules, or a mix of singles and doubles, will impact on performance).

    Giving the FSB a 10-20MHz nudge will also help.

    Agreed, a couple sticks of low-latency 1GB modules will be great. They make them as low as CAS 2 now so the only performance impact comes if you try to overclock them very high.

    Your processor is fine as they don't really get much faster in that socket and you can do as Wayout said and OC it just a tad.

    You could go as far as to get a 10000RPM hard drive or some hard drives identical to one of your existing ones and then run them in RAID, but that would be a little excessive IMO. That system should be pretty damn good for video encoding as it is.
