I have the same motherboard and CPU.

Currently, I am only running SD, but I am considering buying a new
television and that would entail getting some HD content.

I was transcoding movies yesterday at it takes my machine 2 hours to
transcode a 2 hour show.  I thought it has to do it at the playback
speed in order to match the audio to the video.  The other post on
this thread indicates it was taking 15 minutes for a 1 hour show (ah,
I guess that was just for commflagging, not transcoding).

How much are the new X2 chips and what does it involve putting in a
faster CPU to the MO?  Does it have to be soldered?  Does it just clip
in?  Do any OS changes have to happen?  I am running Ubuntu Edgy.
