    If a ceilling have to be made then $800
  3. .....nobody to help. Incredible.
  4. well I would have to say that any build even prebuilt will take the same amount of time to Rip DVD's i dont personally think you need to custom build a pc just for ripping
  5. isn't ripping illegal...
  6. not as long as you own the DVD which is what you have to rip it from....
  7. If you're talking about "encoding", at the moment, you'll want an Intel i7 2600k CPU and an Intel Z68 chipset motherboard.
  8. Processor : Intel Core i7 2600K - $320
    HSF : CoolerMaster Hyper 212 Evo - $35
    Motherboard : ASRock Z68 Extreme3 Gen3 - $125
    RAM : Gskill Sniper 2x4GB DDR3 1600 - $50
    Storage : Seagate Barracuda 1TB SATA III - $55
    ODD : LG 24X SuperMulti DVD Burner - $20
    PSU : Corsair CX430 V2 - $45
    Case : Rosewill Challenger Black - $50

    Total : $700 before rebates

    Quick Sync will do your job pretty fine. I rip 720p HD BR videos to x264 .mkv in 3-4 minutes. (avg.)

    I agree with this build, but you may as well get a Blu-Ray burner, not a DVD burner. You'll still be under $800. Verify that the EVO cooler fits in that case too, or you may be able to move a side fan for it to fit as well. You can skimp on the RAM to 4GB as well since you're not planning on any major gaming or heavy editing too.

    ... so I was wrong when I though I needed a decent graphics card, I though I needed a GTX 550ti at the very least so the job gets done fast. I forgot to mention that this PC is for a girl that like to rip and encode movies in HD. She is looking to buy a new PC and Im "helping her" to get a good one for what she does, I dont rip nor encode movies so I wouldnt know anything about it.


    Does this build need a gfx card to speed the process? Im liking this build so far.

    So you guys didnt mention a gfx card because of the HD3000 in the i7 2600k? I though that was mediocre.

    A discrete GPU is NOT better at encoding than the i7 CPU, but this is only with the combination of a Z68 chipset. The difference is about 300% I believe. For gaming, you will definitely want a discrete GPU however.

    Emmm, that video show virtu with a GTX580!

    Yeah, and the CPU smokes it in comparison. It's also showing that even though you have a discrete GPU, it can "transfer" the load to the CPU is all.

    I see. Then its all set. No discrete GPU to this build (video encoding/ripping) but an i7 2600k instead, or an i5 2500k is the way to go. Thanks guys!

  16. i7 will rip videos even faster than the i5 2500K because of 8 logical cores.

    and the i7's IGP has a technology called "Quick Sync" which beats all the discrete GPUs in transcoding videos.
