Other than making music, I'd want to listen to the music I've made, get on the internet. I have zero interest in gaming.
So could you point me in the right direction for a PC that could handle this? How much should I expect to spend?
What software you thinking of exactly running?
If you use programs that RAMDISK stuff (Ableton Live, Acid) you need alot of ram
If you run alot of effects chain's, you need a powerful processor.
If you want, you can add me to MSN or AIM as I know more about this field, and do audio recording personally.
