I would agree that the CPU is the only limiting factor when it comes
to encoding video/audio (especially when you're enabling
higher-quality video encoding).  I encode most of my videos using
mencoder and the x264 codec.  Even on my P4 2.8GHz CPU it encodes at
only 15 - 16 fps when set to the highest possible encoding quality.
