Hey guys, Ok im building a computer that has to be VERY quiet and mainly used with audio production, so I have been looking around at different forums and what not researching and this is what I have come up with.
Now I already have DVD drive a couple hard drives a specialized soundcard monitor mouse and keyboard, so I dont need to buy them. My budget is around $AU 2000. I will go higher if needs be, but that all depends on necessity.
Ok this is what im considering thus far:
Intel Core 2 Duo E6600
4 x 1024 ddr-2 533 ram (Audio production needs heaps)
400+ GB HD (perhaps 2) Upper market brand 7200.10 16mb Cache
Antec Solo case. $134.00 www.antec.com/us/product...php?ProdID=18500
Zalman 460 Watt Quiet Power Supply (I dont know if that psu has to much or to little power for what im using it for.)
I need an ATX motherboard that pretty much has all the bells and whistles and is of high quality. Was thinking about getting an ASUS P5B but I think that is a bit of overkill since im not overclocking.
And finally I need help getting a graphics card, now I wont be doing much gaming but I would like for the option to be there, I was thinking of spending no more than $150 tops on a Card.
I dont want to over clock, but I want this computer to be upgradeable, wouldnt mind getting 1 of those Intel quad cores next year when I could pick one up for a song, so I will need the appropriate motherboard/cooling/psu etc.
Any ideas, thoughts or opinions will be greatly appreciated.
