Might try turning up the wick a bit. iirc, there is a setting 
(somewhere) for CPU usage [low/med/hi] and how many jobs to run at a 
time... (might be transcoding, not commflag though. crs is a bitch)
I use med and 2 jobs running, on my wimpy core2 with 2 gig and get 
250-300 fps and no impact on frontend stuff.
