    Ok so set up is i have 2 computers. both with storage arrays. One has a lot of processing power and i want to use this box to encode the hd storage to move over to xbox and all that.

    all thoes apps are set up but.... there is a lot of storage on the other computer.

    I want to make a high speed link between these 2 systems so it can read the files from pc A and then process and brodcast from pc B.

    other than just a cross over gb nic. are there any other ways?

    10gig ethernet? Fiber link? both probably out of your price range.. :)

    edit:
    seriously though.. how much data you talking about and what kind of storage array behind it?
    a gig link should do around 100-125MBytes/sec. which is around 6GB of data every minute.. if your disk can keep up.
