Default Vid Sizes

I'd like some suggestions. Last few days I've been trying various Xvid Encoders from PocketDivx to AutoGK. I have an Axim X30 and I know I should encode my Shows in 320x240. But I noticed the encodes I've done at 640x480 look a whole lot better, Is there any detriment to encoding in this res other than size? Would it drain the battery faster the higher the rez? Also for a typical 30 min and 60 min show what file sizes are you guys getting at a given resolution. What do you shoot for ? I do mostely Animation and Live action shows. THanks for the help.

320x240 isn't enough resolution to capture an interlaced source. 640x480 is minimum, but it's not dvd spec.
I cap everything at 720x480, either in virtualdub with picvideo mjpeg, huffyuv, or Lagarith codecs, or in WinDVR directly to mpeg-2 at the same resolution.

You still have to capture at a resolution that's going to get both fields of an interlaced source.
You can resize and deinterlace later if needed.
Virtualdub is ideal.
