Content Creation Benchmarks

I'm beginning to see a pattern here. Well, let's keep going until we see something worth discussing. Off to the encoding benches!

Encoding Benchmarks

The Ogg Vorbis and Lame encoding shows the same old story, yawn. But wait a minute... the Xvid and Divx encoding times look to have a bit of variance there, and the order stays pretty much the same between both video encoding benches. It's not much to talk about, but it's there, and it seems consistent.

    ive had a headache with this board =/ didnt do my homework and bought a phenom x4 9600 and then found out its not compatible with this board =/ i also bought a evga geforce gts 250 512 mb card and it wont post on this board and i get no display, im assuming its just not compatible because i posted it on another board with a psu that was weaker than mine and it had a display. if anyone can shed light on my situation with this video card not posting on this board, would be great. as far as recommending this board, im not even sure its still in production, but i would not reccomend it. spend the extra cash and get a board that can handle a quad core and a modern gfx card. also the cpu fan mounting bracket had one of the tabs break off on me, so i had to get a new psu fan mount, so that gives you an idea of what high quality this board is anyways =/ plus i think i heard that epox went out of business.....
