Hey there. My last build died on me due to a brownout. Since the PSU is gone, I've decided to just start a new. I'm going to be keeping the parts that work - the ram (DDR2 566 if possible), the 2 1TB harddrives, and the video cad (GeForce 8800 GT).
That build, with a dual-core AMD would render 480p video at ~15 FPS, which is way too low for me. Hopefully a new build will atleast get it to 30 FPS.
