This setup cost quite a deal. Could you propose any alternative setups? For example do I need those Kinston\'s HyperX DDRs? Or is this a good packet? I\'m planning to use Opus1 and many other older sample libraries, Windows XP home, Gigastudio 160 and Fx teleport/Gigaport- system so no soundcard. I\'m still thinking about this. Please give me some suggestions.
whwn it comes to Hard drives I always get myself a Maxtor 200 Gig for $162 US Dollars. It has 8mb Cache at 7200 RPM..this works fine.
Ram I keep at 2 Gigs..(PC 3200) and I do stick soley with Intel Motherboards and CPU\'s As far as the tower or case is concerned, I use a minimum of 4 fans inside each one. www.zipzoomfly.com is priced just right.
For Giga 2.5 this machine is a bit over-built. Maybe not for Giga 3.0. We\'ll find out later this week...
Do you care if the machine is quiet? If so, selection of the hard drives, power supply, heatsink, video card and motherboard are critical. There are other threads here that have a lot of info on the subject.
