    Athlon XP 1800+ (1.54mhz)
    Sis 730
    ECS K7s5a (amazing motherboard)
    768+ DDR RAM
    2x 40GB 7200RPM Western Digital Caviar
    M-Audio Audiophile 24/96
    -standalone use for Giga? Nope, Sonar and Giga on same machine
    -Midi Input Card - Audiphile 24/96
    -recording system - Cakewalk Sonar 2.1
    -sequencing system - Cakewalk Sonar 2.1
    -polyphony - 160 voices
    -click/pops in Giga? sometimes? - Never
    -sound quality (1-10) 10
    -comments/suggestions - Excellent system. Gets 160 polyphony alongside Sonar audio tracks without breaking a sweat. Mostly due to motherboard.
