Default Music recording CPU/OS?

My friend wants to get a computer, he mostly records music for his band and edits it by himself. He asked me what processor and operating system would be best for his needs. I, being slightly new to building, am not exactly sure im qualified to make a good recommendation. Can you guys give me some ideas on just the porcessor and os?
I was thinking about suggesting Win 7 to him, but i didnt know if his porgrams he uses would be compatible.

Let me know, Thanks

what is his budget?

You would definitely want to look into compatibility with win7 and the programs he uses. If he is professional you may want to steer clear of win7 as it is still not the final version.

Ask him the programs he has that he needs to run and check compatibility with different operating systems. That will be what will make your os decision for you.

ASUS P6T Deluxe V2 :: INTEL i7 920 @3.4 :: XFX GTX260 :: 6gb Corsair 1600 :: Corsair 750TX :: TRUE 120 :: Samsung T240 24" :: Windows 7 X64

He hasn't gotten back to me about what programs he uses or what his budget is...So i guess he doesn't really care that much. Thanks lol
