OK guys and gals ....What do I need to run good and plenty ???......I have a new RME HDSP 9652 audio card , and I want to load Kontakt 2, and Sonar into a new computer ... I have no preference with AMD or Pentium ..I have a Pentium 4 now that runs GREAT with GigaStudio
That's it !!.....Simple right ? .... If someone could please advise me of the parts that I should use in a computer that will run all of these programs and hardware without a hitch , and run them fast , and with plenty of track's .... I've tried to find out a good running setup in other threads with no success ...
Maybe I will have some luck here ???....Thanks, Jim
Budget range is $1,000 -$2,000 depending on setup ....I do a lot of studio work and this would be for the studio ....It does NOT have to be rack mount if it's gonna run hot....I can do a mid to larger case if necessary .... It has to be dependable , fast , and work with Sonar and Kontakt 2 working together without problems ....There is also the RME HDSP sound card that has to also work in this setup ....Thanks, Jim
if you can still wait a couple of weeks, I would wait for the new
Intel Conroe processors to be released mid-July. This CPU is
supposed to perform between 20 and 40% better than the
current AMD and Intel CPUs and also has less power-consumption.
And even if you don't need that CPU-power, the release of this
new beast will trigger a steep price-drop of the other Intel and
AMD CPUs - so the wait might well be worth it...
