First of all, ive never built my own PC before, but ive upgraded ram, changed hard drives, cd drives etc, installed windows so im not worried about opening up an electronic gadget and having a go ... I want to create a super fast computer which will reduce the time of say 12 hours to encode a High Definition video file to around 15-30minutes. My budget is a grand. What parts would I need? and what are the options? Thanks for your suggestions ...
I'm going to have to agree with MadAdmiral (not really all that unusual)...are you saying that it takes your current system 12 hours to encode a video, and you want to reduce the time to 4% (30 minutes) of that?
To start with, it would help to know your current specs. Secondly, have you seen reports of people doing this? If so, do you know what their system specs are? Unless you're currently running on an 8-year-old computer, I would be surprised if you could do this for the amount of money you are looking at spending.

Fair enough 30 minutes is a bit ambitious, but ive read you can do it in about an hour.
