FYI ... even though I build Athlon home peecees for people, when I can afford my Nuendo system, I'll DEFINATELY have OPUS build and configure my system for me rather than do it myself. I don't know what he charges, but it doesn't matter. My Mac/001 set-up runs like a top, and I'll want the same when I get Nuendo. IMO, the ONLY way to guarantee that is to have OPUS do it. He's the P4 man, the Nuendo man, and the configuration God.
