I'm setting up a simple computer recording system for a friend and wanted to see what the good folks here thought of the specs on the computer he's looking at. We write together alot using Cubase SX and Fruity Loops and the software works great with my computer which is a bit older, has an AMD 1800, 726MB RAM, 120GB harddrive at 7200rpm and I use a Presonus FirePod for the interface. Here is the computer he's looking at, I was hoping to get more insight on what types of RAM might be better for computer recording, and which processors out there today are more preferred. I've been using my computer for about 4 years with no complaints so I'm a bit out of the loop with the advances lately. Specs: Inspiron 531s AMD Sempron™ 3600+ 2.0Ghz Genuine Windows Vista® Home Basic 160GB5 Serial ATA Hard Drive (7200RPM) w/DataBurst Cache™ 1GB Dual Channel DDR2 SDRAM at 667MHz- 2DIMMs I guess I should find out if Cubase SX will work with Vista too!
