I currently have a P4 1.7ghz, 1 gig ram, three HD's. XP pro running Giga 2.5 as a standalone, dedicated machine. I have an RME Digiface that sends 24 discrete audio channels to my main DAW. Works fine.
I have GS3 sitting in the box waiting for me to install it. I've kicked around the idea of upgrading my hardware, but I'd really rather not at this point.
So what kind of problems will I run into? I know Gigapulse is CPU intensive. If I do not get carried away with Gigapulse, what can I expect? Most of the success stories I've seen are folks running 3gz or faster...is anyone running with a system similar to mine and making music?
Yep I use a P3 1 giger with 512 ram, works great with GS3, but gigapulse can't be done. I seem to get a bit more poly, around 200 now instead of the 160 limit I had before. Solid though.
Hoope Santa drops me off a P4 3.2 with 2 gigs of ram soon!!!
