Hey all. Now that the ATV3 does 1080p playback, I think it's time to rip and encode my BD library using Handbrake. I tried a few with my current intel duo core 2.3 but it took nearly 14 hours per encode and with over 200 titles, this isn't going to cut it. I'd like to build a new system but it won't be used for direct video playback, the ATVs will handle that. Primarily the system will serve up iTunes content to a whole house network which the current system does now and very well over my network. I'd like to go with a large mid or full tower as I'll need ample space for multiple HDDs. I was also considering SSD for the OS but if I risk reliability, I'll gladly pass on the idea. Also a recommendation for RAM would be helpful. Thanx in advance.
