[Informations] - Choosing a new Professional DAW Machine (CME VX8 controller) Hello, I'm going to buy a new PC (serious DAW usage) so that I can run as many VST/plugins I can (EWQL Symphonic Orchestra, EWQL Symphonic Choir, GPO, VSL) without having glitches/fuzz/clicks/noise/etc (lowest latency possible). Here are some info: PC Usage: - DVD Playback (Dolby Digital 5.1/DTS) - Gaming (not very much) - Track creations using big samples (much) What I own/will buy: - Windows XP Home Edition 32 Bit SP2 - Cubase SX3 - CME VX8 Keyboard - Creative Gigaworks S750 7.1 (700W RMS) - Creative DDTS-100 decoder And here is a configuration I'm thinking about: Motherboard: D975XBX2 Intel® 975X LGA775 ATX 200 € Processor: INTEL CORE 2 QUAD Q6600 tray STEP G0 240 € RAM: OCZ PLATINUM PC2 8000 2048MB 1000MHZ 2*200 € Hard Disk: SEAGATE HD BARRACUDA 7200.11_500GB_SATA 300_32MB 2*100 € Audio Card: Auzentech X-Meridian 7.1 200 € Total 1240 € N.B.: regarding the HD, I was thinking about a 500GB+500GB = 1 TB configuration (RAID 0 mode) where samples are stored, plus a 120 GB drive for the OS/Cubase. Do you think is a good configuration? Do you suggest me something else? My budget is around 1200€. Thank you!
