I use an old PC and I am finally ready to upgrade and own the "latest and the greatest" computer to be my DAW.
I see that a lot of people post in their signatures what type of software they use or what platform but I don't see real specific info on what their computer "looks" like. I know this is not a hardware forum but I identify strongly with the users of this forum and would really like to know what they use that has proven to be rock solid for them in their music production. Information like what video card works best with what motherboard and memory and what sound card or audio interface, etc.
It's a big investment and a DAW is going to have special considerations that a computer for other uses does not have. It is specialized and this is a specialized forum with members who I am sure have very good info.
My thinking is to start with an AMD Athlon 64 X2 CPU and a motherboard with an AM2 socket and then go from there. I use a Tascam FW-1884 control surface for my audio and midi interface and will continue to use it in my new DAW.
Is anyone interested in listing the details of their computer hardware or offering any experience based advice? I'd be very interested in reading them.
