    DVD rip + Encode and a ram upgrade

    I rip a lot of dvds and encode them to mp4 to store on my streaming drive, however tthe process takes about 6 hours per film (rip + 2 pass encode at 1650 kbps)

    now im running a C2D E6300 and 2gb PC6400 Ram + Vista.
    Rip with Anydvd encode with handbreak.

    If i upgraded to 4gb would i see a significant difference in encode speeds?

    seeing as your pc prob uses about 1GB ram doing nothing, it can only help to upgrade it.

    rip and do a 2 pass encode (not just rip :P)
    well i suppose 6 hours for a longer film, its about 4.5-5 hrs i guess normally, but often up to 6 hours total process.

    E6300 c2d
    2gb pc6400 ram
    x1900XT
    couple of Sata HDDs

    would i see a SIGNIFICANT increase with a ram upgrade?

    seriously, that is long! do you have a link to that G.card for more specs on it pls?

    well i dunno, if ram is cheap then buy some anyway....buy the good ram not the cheap make ones. vista can only handle somethin like 3.42 ram anyway which is why most people stick with 4gb on vista or xp

    actually, how long does it take on this new system the e6300 one> you have tried on it yes?

    How long should it be taking?

    im encoding at 1650 kbps, 2 pass, h.264 with high quality sound. gives me a file size of approx 1.3gb average.

    The GFX card is this: ]http//at…tml
    ive never tried it on any other system

    The Ram won't do much, your bottleneck is your processor.

    blimey! 6 hours

    something seriously wrong with your system

    mine takes about a 20 mins to rip and an hour to encode (core2duo 1,8ghz/2gb/vista)

    adding memory wont make any difference

    gfx card is irrelevant

    what are you encoding with and what settings do you use?

    what could be the issue as to why it takes so long? anyone got any ideas i could try?
