Back about a month ago I asked everyone about a system -
Budget: Tops - 600.00 - No monitor, just the motherboard, cpu, memory, video card.
Used for: Home Music Studio using Cakewalk Sonar 8.5
Do I need quad core cpu?, will a dual core be sufficient and be good enough for recording music. (going through a firewire unit (tascam fw1884) for recording)
Recommended memory - I would like at least 6gigs.
I need to hook-up 2 monitors for display.
Well, wasupmike offered this setup for about $600.
and remember... for audio recording... you can get a cheaper CPU as well if you want to save a little more $ -> like the Athlon II X4 640 ($100), or a fast dual-core like the Phenom II X2 555 ($90) / 560 ($100) "
My budget is $1000.00 now and really want a bang for my buck.
You all have the absolute best advice and I trust your opinions.
Not gaming at all. 90% music with Sonar X1 - 10% rendering with 3D studio and Vue modeling software. Need smooth rotation on graphics in modeling.
With an extra $400 what would be better to add since I would like to use the computer for playing around with 3D studio or Vue software or would the current system wasupmike work good.
