I'm wanting to build a PC. I want to use it for recording with Protools and Reason using midi. I also do a lot of photo editing and schoolwork. I've already built one on newegg and I'm wanting to know if it would be the right computer for my needs.

I would go with a 500 hd for like 50 bucks.. You could always go with amd and get a better system instead of a dead tech socket 775
