Default Questions about FCB & TMPG 5

Hello,

I am a long time Edius user with 5.5 and I have recently started using TMPGenc 5 for all of my DVD and Blu-ray encoding. I wanted to ask some questions about using T5 with the FCB card to other users so here it goes.

1) How much faster is the encoding?

I have a Intel i7-920 (OC to 3.0 Mhz) and 12GB of ram. My workflow is to output a Canopus Lossless file from Edius and input into T5.
For CBR Blu-ray (no Filters) I get 1:1 encoding time.
For VBR Blu-ray (no Filters) I get 1:2 encoding time.
For CBR DVD (color correction & contour filters) I get 1:2.5 encoding time.
For CBR DVD (color correction & contour filters) I get 1:4.5 encoding time.

So with VBR DVD with filters I am at 4.5x the project length to encode the file. This is the best image quality which is what I am after (please don't suggest a lesser option :) ).

2) Will the FCB help my DVD encoding times given I have some filters in use?

3) I have a Gigabyte motherboard. I have read that there is a compatibility issue. Is there a "workaround" or am I just out of luck for the FCB?

Thanks for your input.
