    I've recently entered the world of DAW by purchasing Digi 001 to work with my PC. I was dismayed to find that the software is rather picky and I need a new PC now. To keep expenses down, I would like to build one.I would appreciate any advice on motherboards, processors, ect. so that I can build a compatable system that works. Thanks. . .

    Tim,
    OPUS is the guy around here (and most everywhere else too) to be asking about this. Take this over to the computing forum. He will fix you up good! Kurt

    Also, do a search on "anus"(i'm not kidding) on the computing forum and you'll find sh*itloads of info about a really good build.

    Throw your PC away and buy a Mac. It will save you a lot of trouble in the long run...

    I have been doing well with an Asus board (A7M266) and Athlon. On the most part, problem-free and good plug-in count.
