I am building a computer that will be mainly used for recordning. Only home recording, at the most 4 tracks at one time, nothing proffesional. My budget is 1100 USD (excluding monitor, keybord etc). Of course I can't get all that I want for these money. My question is what's most important. Some things can be upgraded later, for example I think I'll start with 1gb RAM and buy more when I have more money. But then comes the harddrive problems. I know it is best with a seperate audio disk, but how important is it? Is it worth to pay 100 USD to get a seperate audio disk if that meens I have less money to spend on the CPU and motherboard? How of this budget should be spent on the soundcard? It might take 6 months before I have money to upgrade it. I must be able to record stuffs before that. thank you for your help.
