I\'m a Macintosh user thinking of buying a first PC in order to run GigaStudio 160. Being on a tight budget, I was looking for an inexpensive computer. I saw one on eBay.ca but am wondering if it would be able to run GigaStudio reliably. Could anyone have a quick look at the specs and tell me if it might make a decent choice? Please note that this PC would be entirely dedicated to GigaStudio (no sequencer or any other unnecessary software). Here are the specs:
CPU: Intel Pentium IV 1.7 GHz
Motherboard: MoboStar M266, with North Bridge: VIA P4M266 chipset
Price: CAN 309$
I would have to choose and add the RAM, hard drive, optical drive, and sound card myself.
I have a feeling that the motherboard is not good enough to run GigaStudio. I could probably have it replaced by another board from this page:
If someone has a few minutes and can tell me if there\'s a decent replacement in there, I\'d really appreciate it.
