I have basically the same computer. Mine is an XP 1600. I use it with an Audiophile 24/96 sound card and it works great. I get 160 voices. I try to keep the memory below 75%. If I go above that, it sometimes crashes. But if I am below 75% I can work on it all day with no problems. 1 gig of memory would be great.
I happen to have the same soundcard, an Audiophile 2496 and I like it. If your 1600 works I\'m thinking my 1700 will too.
Does your motherboard have the Sis740 chipset? I saw a negative post on stuff before the 760. If I\'m not making sense I apologize, I\'m new to serious computer stuff. I think I\'m learning more about computers on this site then on many dedicated computer sites!
I\'ll probably be getting some more memory. Can you tell me what your vcache, chunksize, and swapfile settings are, and what your OS is?
