Hi I have an old AMD 9950 2.6ghz system with 4g/bytes 800mhz memory that i use to recode blueray films for my own personal use. I use Nero recode to reduce them down I get a frame of about 7/8 frames a second on average so it takes
about 4 times the running time recode a bluray film i bought. My current system is 5 years old and I am looking to build a new one.

I have considered the AMD vishera 8core ghz as the basis for my system considering that I use it to recode films with. Would this the best chip or am I better of going for a new i7 ivy bridge system. Any advice anyone!!.

What kind of budget are you going to be working with on this new build? And are you reusing any parts from your existing build?
