I run Giga on a PC with my sequencer (but only for a short time more [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img] ). The sequencer slows down when the system heavily loaded but, you can make an AWFUL LOT of music that performs perfectly running one PC. Make certian you optimize your OS for DAWs (see Tascam and others). It is usually the NFX that are the problem. I run a PIII @ 866MHz for this work.
I haven\'t allocated two partitions but have created two Hardware Configuration (one normal and the other giga). I choose one at startup. This capability is built-into Windows. The difference between them is which drivers are installed e.g. no USB enabled for giga etc. When I am more serious about perfect performance and I the sequencer is stalling a bit (though never clicks) I will disable as many background tasks as I can via msconfig.
