I have a buyer that does audio producing and wants to buy top of the line.... He has a $1500 budget & i need to make something out of the deal, So try and stay under $1350 His current system is P4 w/ 1gb and is running out of resources. He came to with i7 in mind before I even talked to him, so convincing him that a C2D will do, isn't gonna work. He wants to "future proof". Software he uses is Acid & Pro Tools. Needs a high end sound card, low end/who cares about graphics he says. Air cooling only. Wants XP & 6gb of ram, so 64 bit.....lalallaaland but whatever. I'll pay $25 to whomever comes up with the most solid build fitting the budget. Thread will end sometime before August 10th. Whichever build I use will recieve $25 No Mail-in Rebates/Shipping to 86314 CHECKLIST i7 CPU MOBO RAM SSD or Something Fast RAID? - Size at least 64gb 24 Bit Sound Card - is pci-e best?
