Ok...so I hope i'm posting in the correct forum here. Correct me if i'm in the wrong place. Anywho... I want to build a computer which I will use for music notation programs as well as audio recording programs (and obviously some minor word documents and internet browsing...but mostly for audio stuff). Being not very smart in the computer field, I have no idea what the best parts are. I want... 1.) A motherboard which will support 4 RAM sticks (so I can have 4 Gb of RAM...i'm a speed junky, lol) 2.) The best RAM (I do believe i've heard Corsair is top of the line?) 3.) The most up-to-date processor which will fit the motherboard (duh, lol) 4.) The best hard drive 5.) The best sound card 6.) The best CDRW drive 7.) The best computer speakers I think that's all I really need. Network cards and graphics cards aren't really all that important to me (the most I do on the internet is youtube, hulu, downloading sheet music, and checking my mail). Keep in mind that I plan on using Pro Tools recording (if that makes any difference, lol). I currently run Windows XP and don't plan on changing that. (XP will only operate on 4Gb of RAM, so 4 is all I need). So let me know your opinions on all or even just one of the things I mentioned above. I'm not too terribly worried about price right now as I have a friend who has a lot of high-up connections. Thanks! *I've been asked to add a spending price range.......$400 - $2,000. Does that sound about right?
