If you mean you give the ripping/encoding processes the maximum priority
then no wonder the system drags noticeably. Try a nice level of +15 or some
such, this will push their priority below that of other running programs,
and thus improve general system responsiveness. Take a bit longer to do
the ripping/encoding, unfortunately...
