My limited experience with burning CDs on Windows is that its desktop 
performance is also quite affected when encoding/burning stuff.

As for the original question, you could also probably write a shell
script to conveniently nice the encoding in the first place, so that
you don't have to use renice to change the priority on the fly... 
'man nice'.
