Video encoding. I wanted to build a badass system for him but it would be pointless cause he really wouldn't use it to its full potential other than video encoding dvd's. That was another choice for a case but I opted for the xclio because of the huge fan. Thats why I got the aerocool fan for exhaust.

Off topic but I'm deciding whether I should get a Q6600 or X3210. Can't find any place that'll promise a G0 X3210
