    So what do you all think of this DAW/video setup? Any glaring mistakes?

    • Antec P150 (case includes the Neo HE 430W ATX12V v2.2), might add 2 x 92mm fans. So sad it doesn´t come in silver/black
      Gigabyte GA-K8NF9 ULTRA
      AMD Athlon 64 X2 3800+ Dual Core 2.0 GHz, 2000 MHz, Boxed
      Corsair TWINX 2048-3200C2PT 2048 MB, PC3200, 400 MHz, 2, Kit Of 2
      MSI GeForce NX6200LE 128Mb, DVI, TVo,Passive,PCI-E
      NEC ND-4550A Bulk, Silver
      Maxtor DiamondMax 10, 250Gb, 7200rpm,16Mb SATA300 music
      Maxtor DiamondMax 10, 250Gb, 7200rpm,16Mb SATA300 video
      Maxtor DiamondMax 10, 80Gb, 7200rpm, 8Mb ATA133 os + prog

    A few considerations on the side:

    If I'm not mistaken the on board FW800 is on the PCI-e bus.

    I plan to work with a Yamaha 01v96v2 on mLAN.

    There is no need for a PCI soundcard, unless maybe a DSP-card like the UAD or TC Powercore later on.

    If I rout it correctly I should also be able to use the FX section of the 01v96

    If the stock cooler turns out too loud I will probably replace it with a Zalman AlCu 7700 or so. I have heard they´re pretty decent though, so I'll wait and hear.

    My max trackcount will be around 32, including MIDI.

    Your points of view are much appreciated.

    UAD and Nforce 4 with dual core are a no go right now.

    UAD is working on it.
    aside from that Nforce 4 with a DC AMD work great, single core is terrible

    Thanx for your input, ADK.

    I just pulled the trigger on this one. Had to change the vid card into GigaByte VGA GV-NX62TC256D8 128 MB (GV-NX62TC256D8).

    When it's all is assembled I´ll try to run some test and hopefully I´ll be able to post some nice results.
