Hey all, Currently got a PC running XP SP3 with; - E6550 2.33ghz Core 2 Duo - 2 GB DDR2 RAM (And other unimportant parts). Can anyone see any issues arising from this? Namely the OS and RAM, for example. I'm not sure how limiting my hardware in fact is, after all, so I ask you all. I use Cubase AI 4 at the moment, with the Komplete 7 sample pack, and I'm wondering if an OS upgrade would be sensible, and compatible with all that? I plan to upgrade to Cubase 6. Does it function better with a newer OS? ------------------ Unrelated to the above, I'm wondering whether a sound card would be a good idea, as opposed to the current on-board sound, if I'm to be producing music with this PC - I will eventually be recording audio, possibly, but the real focus is MIDI work. Would the final sound produced, as well as the quality of sound heard through studio monitors, depend heavily on the sound card? If so, are there any industry standard cards I should aim to purchase? Thanks for reading the hogwash of questions above! - HateDread.
