Mike is a good guy, makes a reasonably priced computer....You can add things to the base price to make the computer that you want at a reasonable price .
Tell him Jim from NY sent you .....Good Luck .....Jim
Thank you both (Symbiotic and synthnut/Jim) for your replies - exactly what I was looking for! I'll explore both routes. BTW, I have a MOTU 2408 PCI system (and a separate MIDI interface) for streaming audio back to the Mac via lightpipe. Should be ok, correct?
Regarding budget, what price range should I expect to pay to build a similar core system (CPU, RAM and drives)?
Any factors to decide between the P4 or Athlon64?
Jim, did you have Mike build you a PC and if so what did you get, how long did it take and how much did it cost (if you're comfortable sharing).
