Hey- I'm putting together a new win2k PC, and wanted some input on my choices so far- apparently I just hit some arcane multibutton function, and got kicked out, so it's possible you all will see the first half of a similar post- sorry, if so... OK, here's what I have. I was going to go dual PIII, but haven't seen a compelling argument that it's really going to net me much. From what I understand, Windows will not spread a single application across two processors. I may be wrong, however. Asus A7V266 mobo w/Athlon XP 1700 (at least) 1G DDR266 ram Adaptec SCSI card Plextor SCSI CDRW 20G IBM ATA66/7200 (OS & apps) *either 40G IBM ATA66/7200 drive *or (2) 18G UW160 SCSI 7200 drives Matrox G450 32meg Dual Head vid. card Floppy, CDRom, adequate cooling, etc. RME Hammerfall DSP/Multiface I will be running Samplitude and some sort of backup utility that can span CDR's (ideas?). I appreciate any thoughts anyone has on this setup... Thanks!
