I am about to have a computer custom built. I want to know if my proposed setup is good, and if it has any signifigant flaws. I think, but I am not sure, that my RAM will run at 800MHz. I'm also not sure if the RAM is double or single bank.
I'll be doing some audio processing, some relatively heavy number crunching, text editing/word processing, and basic internet stuff. I'll be using XP Pro, and I'm trying to minimze noise. I'll most likely order this pre-built.
I won't be doing any gaming or overclocking. Does the following parts list sound ok?
