I wasn't sure whether to put this in the hardware forum or here, but I figured this is more about how Giga 3 Orchestra will perform.. so here it is.
My current computer rig:
Athlon XP 2500+
1GB PC2700 RAM
2 x 80GB Maxtor ATA133 (one for my apps, one for .gigs)
New planned rig:
Athlon 64 3500
2GB PC3200 RAM (four sticks of 512MB, each pair of them dual channel)
80GB SATA150 (for all my apps)
300GB SATA150 (for .gigs)
Or instead of the 300GB I could get two 74GB Raptors and RAID them together to get a 148GB drive.
Thoughts? Should I wait till my computer upgrade for Giga 3? Or will my current machine see benefits and be able to handle it? I could get GS3 Orch, but I could also grab GS3 Ensemble to save some money, and just upgrade to Orch later.
