Alrighty guys! Iäve decided to bite the bullet and build a dedicated audio machine. Specs so far: AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core 4200+ (Socket 939) Asus A8V-E SE VIA K8T890 (Socket 939) PCI-Express Motherboard Corsair 2GB DDR XMS3200PT TwinX (2x1GB) CAS3 Antec NeoHE 430W Modular ATX2.0 PSU And my Edirol USB interface. Now, my friend designed this machine for me and recommended a PowerColor ATI Radeon X800 GTO 128MB DDR TV-Out/DVI GFX card. Now, this is 100% audio, he's a gamer. is this card Overkill for what i wanna do (running nuendo, 90% audio work, i.e, very little realtime midi processing). he then said to me "Kieran88 says: ive got an x300 here that has a DVI and VGA output" which he is willing to give to me for free. Now, how much does the GFX card play in the role of processing power of a DAW and more to the point, would this card suffice? Cheers!
