happy new year guys

ya, ram is dirt cheap, but it is mostly ddr2. trying to find some older ddr is kinda tough at that price. most pcs/laptops from past few years are ddr2. i've got a laptop and its just as good right now. maybe 40-50 for 2x1gig. but if you have a machine thats a few years old, and runs good with xp, no need to change. new pc going forward, thats diff story

anyway, the ps3 will definitely do what your looking for. for a bit i was using my 360 for that but now that the ps3 added divx support recently as well i use it instead as its much quieter (in my setup anyway)
