Audio DAW PC build - Budget under £600? Tags: Homebuilt Audio Systems Last response: December 17, 2011 11:06 AM in Systems Share soundtrackshack December 17, 2011 10:57:07 AM I'm after an audio DAW PC that is good for handling vst's and effects. I don't need a soundcard for now as I will do that later on. But how is this spec? A few people on this forum advised me of this spec, looking to see what I can tweak or change in this spec. Any advice is appreciated. Budget is ideally £500, but if not possible, can stretch to £600 as want a PC that can last a good few years. My existing one is cack!
