Windows95, Pentium II 300 MMX processor (or faster), 128MB RAM, Dual Ultra-Wide SCSI dedicated 6GB Hard Drive (<<8ms access time),
Some salesmen at a popular computer store told me that you can\'t install a DUW SCSI (<<8ms access time) Hard drive into any of the models that they carry. (They carry just about everything). Some computer techs told me I would have to build from scratch. Another stores salesman said the NEC-VT300 would accept the harddrive. What are some suggestions? I need one drive for the business, and one for the music. I also want to run a sequencer with the GS. Thanks for the forum.
I agree...go with UDMA drives. SCSI is really a black magic that you don\'t want to play with if you don\'t have do. I run gigasampler off of a Maxtor Diamondmax 17.2 gig drives...works like a dream, just as slick as any of my SCSI drives. Or you could get two maxtors and set up a raid type thing and really have it out!
Oh...and I\'d recommend staying away from \'drugstore\' computers if at all possible. Get a custom workstation built if you can (or build one yourself if you are so inclined). You\'ll get much more bang for your buck (it\'ll be a slight bit more expensive, but worth it). Remember that a lot of \'drug store\' computers have limited expandability and certain models have conflicts due to built in soundcards (that are actually built IN to the motherboard). Beware
