    What's wrong with these specs?

    Here's the brain stomper PC I'm having trouble with.

    Motherboard: MSI 875PNEO-P
    CPU: Intel p4 3.2GHZ
    RAM: 2GB PC3200 (in dual channel memory configuration) - brand: Kingston ValueRAM
    Video: ATI 9600 SE
    Harddrives: 1 - Seagate SATA drive & 2 Western Digital P-ATA 250 GB in a RAID 0 configuration
    Power Supply: Antec TruPower 430 watts

    Win XP Pro SP1 (barebone i.e. non unnecessary software with musicxp.net tweaks )
    GS 3.04
    Micro Express 128 (8 midi ports)
    Perf Tool 2.11

    Anything obvious that could be the cause of my problems?

    I had audio glitches and latency problems with the MSI 875PNEO-P board... replaced with the ASUS P4C800-E Deluxe, and everything is great now:

    I have an Intel 865 PERLL mobo and this one is working without a hitch now! Altough i should recommend an Asus motherboard above Intell i had lots of problems with hyperthreading and this is less of a problem with Asus.

    An MSI motherboard is probably not the right choice anyway. The success stories are all done with Asus, and less with Intell. Nowhere i read music computers with MSI mobo's.

    Thanks everyone for the help.

    Would a ASUS P5AD2 Deluxe work fine?
    It looks like the ASUS P4C800-E Deluxe is getting more difficult to find.
    As fas as video card what is known to be trouble free?
