Yes yes yes, I searched. I just need some validation from the resident brainiacs before I buy anything. I will be upgrading from 512MB ram to 2 gigs. No issues there. However, I've read and read and read that if you are going to use samples, you should really have 3 hard drives. Well, that's not an option for me right now. Am I going to run into insurmountable problems if I am recording audio and using MOTU's Symphonic Instrument on just 2 hard drives? My current case only has a 1/2 drive bay open, so I'll have to use an external firewire drive. Or maybe I should ditch my floppy drive? Don't know if I've ever even used it. Can I do that? I asked some questions in there, right? Thanks, Tyler.
