I'm building this myself and checking the prices like on newegg, this pentium D 940 system seemed like the best deal to get dual core with 60nm technology without getting into the core 2 duo range. So I'm a little confused when you say there are better deals. Please suggest them!!
main parts include
corsair value ram
the rest is little things like dvd writer, case, one hd, cause i already own a couple i can throw them in when i build this new system.
this is only for audio, nothing else. no gaming, no web surfing, word processing. strictly audio processing with a DAW.
my budget initally i wanted to remain like $500, but 600 is tops
