    Re: Spec help for new PC inc Sound Recording

    Is this it ??
    http://www.dpkmusic.com/dpkmedia/D-VERB_TEST_FILES/

    I would be happy to run it on my 965 x4 later if still needed.

    Quick rig idea (all from scan)
    Asus P7H55-M LX Motherboard MATX £58.26
    Intel Core i5 760 Quad Core £158:58
    Corsair Memory XMS3 4GB DDR3 1600 £35:94 (cheaper than the 1333 spd ram)
    Xigmatek HDT-S963 CPU Cooler £10:78 (optional as I dont know how quiet stock cooler is)
    CiT S001 Micro ATX Desktop / Tower Combo with 450W PSU £32:40 (very cheap should be suitable)
    MSI GT430 OC 730MHz NVIDIA Graphics Card - 1GB £49:72
    Second hand x-fi card for approx £20-40
    Hard drive and dvd burner??

    Approx £400 depending upon what can be re-used.

    Yeah I know they suck, I was just trying to keep the cost downand as the machine wont be taxed to hard or overclocked I was hoping it would cope.

    A phenon x4 based rig could shave £100 of the cost of the spec I put up as the chip is cheaper and the onboard graphics should be enough to cope with the screen forgoeing a nvidia card until you needed it.

    Re: Spec help for new PC inc Sound Recording

    This thing will get zero maintenance. I imagine it'll go under the bench just like the last one and be left to slowly cook itself and vacuum dust out of the air. A stable PSU will be worth the extra £10-20. Thanks for the warning on CiT.

    Sadly I don't think the wait option will materialise - if it doesn't get in the original mix I don't think it will happen, so it's all-in or bust.

    No idea, not done it myself yet - Cat suggested it and I thought it sounded like a good idea, just haven't had chance to do anything about it yet.
