    Issues, compatibility etc??...Any help would be appreciated. Thanks, Carl

    Looks very good -- except the onboard audio will probably not be useful to you, and you'd need a decent audio card.

    You might also consider two 2-gigabyte computers rather than 1 4-gigabyte computer -- for gigastudio, 2 gigs seems about as much as can be used at present. Also consider how many disks (eg., 3: a 40gig for system, an 80 gig for sonar files and gigapulse, and a 200?? for samples). Also consider noise -- where will the computer be? If close to you, then the power supply should be quiet and you might invest another $30 in a quiet cpu cooler, and pick quiet disk drives.

    Thanks gugliel, how goes it? I'm thinking about the 40G Raptor
    As for other drives I'm already using ATA 7200's / 40G main/ 5- 120's/ 250/ 300.
    The power supply is an Enermax 460W Whisper.
    The fan is a Vantec AeroFlow2 P4 VP4-7245 CPU Cooling/ heatsink 4000RPM
    Noise level: 35 dB / a Lian-Li PC60 case.
    By the way I checked out your music at SC, great writing & compositions, very cool.. Alot of work I imagine having just started with GS3/VSL.
    Also the problem I had with the banks switching in Sonar is a bug in GS3V.1 ; after I installed the update it worked fine. Unfortunatley it took about a week to figure that out!..Carl

    Sounds like you'll have a great giga computer. Thanks for taking the time to listen to my music too!
