Thank you both for the reviews. Unfortunately both didn't help me to get a 
feeling what is the difference in speed with these processors, using mencoder 
and Opensuse 11.1 or any other linux. Since I want to compare cpus, which I 
don't own, it doesn't make sense to compare myself.

AMD Phenom II X4 920 4x 2.80GHz AM2+ 125W Stepping C2 Box
INTEL Core 2 Duo E8400 2x 3,00GHz 6MB 333MHz boxed or
INTEL Core 2 Quad Q8200 4x 2.33GHz, 333MHz

bit-tech.net mentions the Phenom, but not these Intel cpus above. Both Intel 
cpus have a similar price and the Phenom is a little bit higher.

It is getting complicated with the onboard-components of the boards, because I 
read of audio-problems with Asus-boards and Realtek chips. The AMD system will 
be about 20€ more expensive, so the decision will go to the faster encoding 
cpu and of course I am interested in the problems with the TLB-Bug of the 
Phenom which would be an argument to use an Intel cpu.
