I submitted this to the TASCAM forum, but didn\'t get much help (except for Todd Rubenstein. Thanks! [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img] )
Below are the specs I\'m considering for a Gigastudio 160 system. I\'m looking to purchase it through (if I can mention vendors here) cyberpowerpc.com, because I have no experience building pc\'s and I have no one here to help me with it.
I think I\'ve included all the relevant details. I would appreciate it if any experienced users would weigh in on any forseeable problems in it and what changes I could make to avoid those.
P4 2.4 <to avoid denormaling problems>
GigaByte GA-8IHXP I850E (533MHZ FSB, PC1066/800)
1024 RAMBUS PC800 (CORSAIR w/heatspreader)
40GB 7200 ATA100
WD 80GB SPEC. ED. (7200, ATA100) <or 120?>
NO RAID CONFIG
MAUDIO Audiophile 2496 sound card <may have budget to upgrade>
nVidia MX440 64MB 4X AGP
16X DVD ROM
TDK 40X12X40X CDRW
WINDOWS XP HOME
Cool Edit Pro 2.0
Cakewalk Home Studio 9 (with a view to upgrading to Cubase)
Roland XV-2020 editor (as I expect to use the 2020 in my setup)
Also, the mobo doesn\'t have firewire ports. Can I add that functionality another way somehow?
