Is there a computer that meets the Garritan Systems Requirements and Recommendations that is near the $2000 dollar range?
My present system ain't gonna cut it.
$2000 dollars? Sure! And way below that! It all depends... What do you need to buy? A new mouse? A new monitor? A new keyboard? --> Probably not! So that leaves you with $2000 to make yourself a pretty smooth computer...
Do you have any other hardware that you're planning to use in you new computer, like a sound card for instance? If not, you could buy a cheap soundcard like the M-Audio Audiophile 24/96. It does not have that many ins and outs as the more expensive cards but with the latest drivers it works like a dream with softsynths and samplers. I understand that this is what you plan to use this for??
As for the computer, I would recommed you to go with 2GB RAM. If you're new to samling tech you're probably going to buy other sample-libraries in the future, (trust me on this) so starting out with a decent amount of RAM would help you a lot if you'd buy something like EWQLSO Gold or VSL later on. Those libraries reqiures more RAM than GPO...
