Hi! I\'m about to build a PC for use just with GS. According to some messages on this list(by the way, this list rocks) some CD rom drives are not compatible with S-converter.
Can any one advise the best mother board to use with GS.
From what I know in general for audio they advise gigabite mother board and ATI video cards.
Thanks for any info!
I use ASUS P2-99, it\'s a really great board, get the new p3 if u can...About cd roms drivers, so far I didn\'t tried any s-conversion yet, I\'ll try my first one prolly next week. I have 3 cd drives (HP cdrw 7200i, Samsung and cyber drive), I will let you guys know the results. By the way, I heard good things about the Toshiba ones on s-convert jobs.
Im using a Abit BE-6 motherboard and giga sampler works great with it . I think its a good mother board for giga sampler because it\'s cost effective [ I payed $110 for it ] and the Abit boards have a high reliability rating and when I bought it in 7/5/99 it was the only motherboard with in that price range that supported the IDE UDMA/66 Harddrives . As far as the rest of my system goes im using a pen-3-450 with 128 meg ram , soundblaster live , a IBM 14 gig deskstar hard drive for giga sounds [this IBM drive only cost $125 at pricewatch.com and its 5400rpm with 2 meg cashe and 9 millasecond seek time , which fit the requirment for giga sampler ] and a wimpy 4 gig drive for win 98 operating system and my programs.So if your putting together a system I can vouch that this combination works well .Ken
