Hi everybody My old AMD K2 450 MHz just crashed, and I`m tired of fixing the damn box every month. So I`ll build myself a new DAW. I`m so glad that there`s this forum, I don`t know what I would have done without you. My main concern when I put together my new DAW is to make it as quiet as possible. I don`t really need to record 40 tracks with tons of plugins, even though I do serious recording on it. My ears are quiet sensible by now(playing drums since I was 8, now it`s mostly Saxophon) and I allready have a bad Tinitus(ringing in ear) with 19. Even though my budget is really low, I`m gonna spend some extra money to make it quiet, I hate loud computers. So I`m going to get the case, powersupply and the cooler from a german company called NoiseControl. I read a lot of reviews about them and it`s seems like the right choice. If you can read german, the site is http://www.NoiseControl.de Does anybody has experiences with this company(if there`s anybody from germany or europe around)? The rest of my setup is: ASUS TUSL2-C Intel P3 1000MHz FCPGA 133MHz/256K 2 256 MB SDRAM Kingston High Quality Noise Control Cooler FCPGA/Socket A bis 1000 Mhz Luxus Midi Tower (schawrz/silber) Fleece gedämmt(Noise Control) 2 Maxtor Drives (OSAudio) 300w PC-Winner Papst 1500 (Noise Control) Plextor CD-Writer 24 This is the first DAW I`m building, I hope it`ll be a success. Ì still got two questions: 1. Which is a cheap and good graphic card for a DAW? And how much more expensive is a card with two monitors? (I saw a recommendation in another topic, but I couldn`t get the card here in Switzerland) 2. Is a 300 Watt power supply enough for a setup like this? I really appreciate any input, any recommendations and critic on my setup. Thanks a lot. Question for people from Europe(especially Switzerland or Germany): Is there something like pricewatch in europe? Or where do you buy your computer parts?
