    I'm planning on building a new DAW sometime soon'ish. Here are the specs I've settled on so far after a small amount of research:

    Motherboard - MSI K8N Neo2, ASUS A8V Deluxe or DFI Lanparty nF3 UT Ultra-D (This is the bit I can't make my mind up on as yet although the ASUS A8V is the one I'm most wary of)
    Processor - AMD 64 X2 4800+ maybe a 4200+ realistically depending on finances
    RAM - 2 Gig
    System Drive - Seagate 80 Gig IDE (which I already have)
    Audio Drive - Western Digital Raptor 74 Gig 10,000 SATA 150
    Graphics Card - Matrox QID AGP x8
    DVD Drive - Optorite DD1205 (which I already have)
    CPU Cooler - Zalman CNPS6000 S462
    HDD Enclosers - Silentmaxx Aluminium HD-Silencer (x2)
    PSU - Zalman 400w ZM400B-APS
    Case - My existing Carillon 19" rack case

    Anybody got an suggestions on this spec, any other haardware needed such as extra fans etc?

    HI,

    my choice best to worse

    Asus
    DFI
    MSI

    skip the WD raptor, get a 16meg cache Maxtor 250-300G
    every bit as fast.

    get a higher powered power supply
