Windows XP, Audigy 2, and Gigastudio.. compatible?
Im about to pull the trigger on a new computer and am on a VERY tight budget (as Im jobless at the moment) but desperately need a new pc to run giga and house all my samples since my current pc is 3.5 years old and a complete mess. My main question is, if I get a pc with Windows XP home / professional with an audigy 2 zs 7.1 card or a soundblaster live card, will gigastudio work? Also, where on the web is a good place to get a custom computer built? Ive been doing alot of pricing over at ibuypower.com which is working well, Im just curious if there is anything else out there (besides dell and gateway). My budget is just under $1000. If I go through ibuypower.com where can I get a decent audio card (that isnt too pricey) that will effectively run giga with multi client capability and a low latency? Thanks in advance!

The Audigy will work if you use 3rd party drivers -- Kx Project. They\'re very solid drivers.
As for your new box, you can save considerable amount of money if you build your own. IT\'S NOT HARD TO DO (check the web for step by step instructions), takes about an hour or two. I built a screaming fast AMD machine with WinXP for about $600-700.
I\'ve been running it for about a year now, without any problems.
