So, I've been feeling a bit anxious today, because I'm starting to realize I just might have to build a 2nd PC, and put Giga on it by itself. So, I'd like to get some advice on a PC.. normally I'd just buy a ATX mid tower case, throw a motherboard, RAM, my Audiophile card, and a hard drive in there..but.. space is a concern. A BIG concern. I've got a pretty small room I'm working with here (insanely small). Ideally I'd like to own one of those shuttle PCs, you know.. these guys:
Aw, ain't it cute?
Anyway, I'd like to hear from other people who have built ultra low-profile Giga boxes, and your experiences with that. Do I still need the dual HD setup (primary HD = Giga and software, secondary HD = samples)? Or will just one HD suffice? Does the CPU need to be a powerhouse or not? One thing's for sure, I'm going for 2GB RAM. And of course, the case, as tiny as it should be, needs to house my Audiophile 2496 PCI card without issue.
Any suggestions would be beyond great. I'm getting into some heavier work now, and one PC to do everything on (Giga, Sonar, web surfing, games, e-mail, etc.) isn't cutting it. Giga is already fighting with Outlook, it seems.
