    Building a computer for Giga studio

    Hi All
    This thread is for listing new computer configurations that are working with Giga studio.
    It will be a reference for people getting ready to put together or buy a preconfiged computer and to see what does and does not work with Gigastudio.
    I know we have had a few simular threads like this in the past but with computers changing so fast ,what was comsidered to be a optimum computer for giga studio last year may not be now.
    So for anyone considering putting together a computer for giga studio [like my self in the next month or so maybe this will help us save some money,time and aggravation.
    So if you just bought a computer recently and its working well with giga studio please list the configuration .
    CPU
    Memory
    Motherboard
    hardware ,etc
    Please let us know how well it is performing , any pop and clicks or glitches.

    Hey guys it is a AMD Athlon Thunderbird 266/1.2, ASUS A7V133 Motherboard, 768 megs of PC133 RAM
    No pops or clicks at all and getting the full 160 without even breaking a sweat!

    The cool thing about having someone like Soundchaser do this is that everything works flawlessly about of the box. Everything is configured to it\'s max. I think my boot drive is only about 700 megs full right now!

    I thought I would start this thread with Donnies new machine posted on another thread.

    I just wanted to let everyone know that I just got a DAW from Soundchaser specifically for giga and sample recording. I would definately suggest that if you are in the market for a dedicated PC that you give these guys a call. They did a great job and everything works like a champ! The rack enclosure is very sturdy and houses everything very nicely.
    Here are the specs:

    Athlon 1.2 ghz
    768 ram
    15 gig IDE boot
    18 gig SCSI 160 recording drive
    60 gig removable IDE backup/gig drive

    This thing rocks!

    PS. And yes I paid full pop for this from them and it\'s worth every penny. I just wanted to post something positive since there hasn\'t been much lately

    Kenn159,

    I\'m trying to figure out the IDE vs SCSI thing. Are you playing gigasamples directly from the 60gig IDE drive? In general, I want to know if the larger cache and better IDE drives are okay for a sample drive vs a smaller SCSI drive. It sounds like you got some current advice from SoundChaser. Can you pass the scoop along?
