all about processor power and ram to be honest 2 gig of ram will do ya and just the beastiest processor you an get and you will be alright, oh yeah a fast hard drive as well so you dont get a bottleneck of samples in ya projects

nah mate. go for 3gbs of ram and a slightly cheaper processor. It *used* to be all about processor power, but now most processors are powerful enough, and the less pages are switched around the memory the better. A dual core 2.4ghz + 3gb of ram will be fine, if you can get a quad core then go for that. Agree with the fast HDD, but a 500gb 7200rpm should suffice.

Nice.. Would just advise getting a dual, if not quad core processor, and make sure your hard drive is SATA (will be pricey for 1tb) but that means making sure u get a motherboard with SATA..

Oh and with the 512MB nVidia GeForce 9600GT Graphics... Its fucking HUGE! make sure you get a big case if you are buying it as parts!

Check out http://www.novatech.co.uk/novatech/ .. They will sort you out and cheap as chips!
