Compute vs Graphics mode when transcoding

I’m using a Tesla M60 to transcode a number of streams and I was wondering whether there are advantages/disadvantages of using Compute Mode vs Graphics Mode. This machine is a dedicated transcoder machine and no display is needed. Any input is appreciated.

If you want to perform any post-processing or pre-processing using CUDA, Compute mode is preferable.

If you want to perform any post-processing or pre-processing using DirectX, graphics mode is preferable.

If you don’t care about any post-processing or pre-processing, it does not matter.
