Awesome !


One thing I forgot to ask:
Will the OS I'm using play a role as in whether the processor can be used to its benefit?

I will get XP professional NOT Vista.

Edit: sorry about the double post.

But seriously, you only double post if you need to bump your topic. Those posts were only a minute apart.

Sorry, yes, I should have done that. Tried to fix it but saw I can't delete a post.

I have been using XP home for the past 7 years, and I have heard from many Vista users (especially using it for a DAW) that it caused lots of problems and XP will run smoother on a DAW PC.

by DAW you mean: Digital audio workstation - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

the drivers for my sound card are better in vista than xp. sounds wayyyy better, but i dont edit or create music. if that's what you were referring to.

Yes, that's what I meant by DAW.
Well, I can only refer to what I hear on the music forums, but there also opinions differ. I just thought to stay with what works, I also don't know if my sequencing software will be Vista compatible.
