    Hi, I'm new here. I was introduced to this site by some guy on homerecording.com.

    Ok, I have Cubase SX and a Delta 44 which BTW came with Emagic Logic.

    I still need a computer though, so I went to X-Technology.com and I came up with this set-up. What do you think?

    If you recommend anything better, parts or other things I will greatly thank you! Keep in mind the computer I arranged on here is costing me an arm and a leg so I really can't afford anything more expensive then $1,200.

    Well, first off the usual welcome to RO greetings!!!!! :c:
    Any questions asked are good questions and the stupid ones are the one's that are not asked!!!
    So, thus begins the help...
    Save yourself some money and forget the DVD player...what do you need it for? Seriously...that's not an aspect of DAW systems. It only takes up space. Is there any reason why you choose to have a DVD player in there?
    Do tell if so..
    Don't worry about getting an extra CPU cooler..more money can be saved that way...instead spend the money on a better PSU..like an Enermax...Enermax are very efficient in the way they work..two fans..one inside and one outside. Helps to draw air current past the CPU.
    Video card..I would go for a Geforce 2 before I went with anything else. Either that or get a Matrox G450 and be done with it....there is no need for a high end graphic card in a DAW system.. remember the less memory on a graphic card the better as it will not take as much PCI badnwidth or cause any issue on video drawback taking performance away from the audio playback.
    Otherwise the system looks good.
