Right, its time for me to move on from the piece of shit im using now.... ive had enough of buffer underruns, glitches, stutters, and lack of sample library space so ive been saving my pennies and im gonna build a new PC..... hopefully what im building will be able to cope with the vast amount of reverb & delay i use, unlike the crappy dell im using now Ive never built a PC before but i have installed various CD/DVD drives and installed extra ram, and installed PCI stuff, im no expert but from the stuff ive seen online im pretty sure i can do it (lets hope so anyway) This machine will be mainly used for production so the important things are speed, memory, storage and noise (oh, and price of course)...... heres the parts im thinking of buying....... cpu: Intel CORE 2 DUO E8400 3.00GHZ S775 FSB1333 6MB IN - £115.42 mobo: Gigabyte GA-EG31MF-S2 Motherboard Core 2 Extreme Socket 775 Intel G31 Micro ATX Gigabit Ethernet LAN - £43.93 psu: Akasa Ultra Quiet 400w PSU 24pin BLK - £41.91 or....
