OK, Im rebuilding my studio from scratch and Im am going to build my own PC since it will be the focal point of the whole project. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on what would be a good motherboard/processor/hardrive configuration that allows a lot of flexibility (numerous usb ports, memory slots, etc...) as well as a good sound card that will give my projects the sound they need. So far im considering an Athlon 64 motherboard but ive had mixed reviews on that. As for the processor, some people have told me a P4, some have told me a Pentium D. The setup needs to be as efficient as possible so there are no hickups in processing power which can ruin a recording, as well as handle multiple multitrack recording programs running simultaneously without breaking a sweat. If anyone could throw me a little advice on this i would greatly appreciate it. thanks a lot.
