Hi,

Am looking to build a new PC but am not really sure of what should i get.
Am a music producer and so i want a very good MoBo + Processor.

Things i HAVE :

Sound card - M-Audio's Delta Audiophile 24/96
Headphone - Beyerdynamic DT 250

Things i Dont want :

A Graphic card. am not gona play games. An onboard one should be more than enough.

Things i WANT :

Ram. Kingston ? 2 or 4gb ?
An Asus MoBo
AMD X2 processor may be 4800+ ?
A better power supply/ cooling fans ?

Any suggestions would really help.
thank you.

XP or vista?

2gb on vista gives same perfoamance as 1gb on XP generally

4gb on xp is a waste as it cant handle it properley

Power supply is important but your not gonna have a graphics card so you dont need anything huge

Personally i reccomend the InteL Core2 over the AMD X2

XP. 100%.

To be honest, am looking forward to buying AMD since am using one. Am currently using AMD Athlon MX 2400 +. It works great. Its only that its too old now and i dont wish to upgrade it but buy a new one.

2gb of 600mhz should do it i think instead of 4gb.

Any thoughts ?

Yeah, should be good

I use my 2gb/xp pro/pentium 4ht for programming/amateur filmmaking and its good

I dont do anything professionally sounding, but running effects and things in audacity (i play bass guitar in a band) is really quick

programs like that benifit a lot from having a dual core CPU i think

2gb on xp is very good.

is the compuer going to be in the same room you are recording in? because that will make noise a factor. look at antec's line of silent psu's and you also might want to look at cooler master's cosmos case. i have one of these, and it is SILENT.

in the cpu department, check out amd's 5000 black edition. it uses amd's new 65nm brisbane core.

I am building one also for music production. I am running protools m-powered, Sonar 7 Producer Edition, Reason 4.0 in rewire mode. I use Waves Vst plug ins Platinum, Diamond and Gold. I record in 24 bit/96mhz. It takes up a lot of room and it kills a single core 2.6 and 3.1 single core. CPU's is a major factor. I tweaked my computer specially for music production. I will build a computer with the AMD and I hope that it does not work properly or effectively. I really can't afford to play with components.
