So thats 55 mb/ minute or slightly less than a megabyte per second.
Most harddrives can probably handle sustained writing around 50 mb/s.
Thats 50 more times than the amount you're writing. So I guess storage would be your primary bottleneck. Yes you could quickly run out of space, producing 1 meg/sec.
a 2 hour video. 7200 seconds, around 7 gigs of space.
Thats DVD quality video you have there then.
You could saturate a typical 250 gig harddrive with 15 dvds basically.
Maybe you don't even really need much horsepower, unless you plan on editing.
