Re: Music Recording
Just a few more questions,
firstly what's your budget, budget always matters, I mean if you have £300 for the whole thing and want a £150 soundcard then it's going to be a little tricky...
if cost isn't important at all then it's a bit easier...
anyway here are my recomendations.
Get as faster processor as you can,
when choosing a hard drive choose data transfer rqte and disc spin rate over complete disk size, it's no good having a large disk if you can't write to it fast enough to record for a long enough time!
Get lots of ram, don't have enough ram then you're going to start having to cache things to te hard drive and that may, (in the very worst case) mean that there are skips and gaps in the final audio file.
case, just get the cheapest you can, having played in many bands and used PC's to record music on multiple occasions, a music PC usually means it'll be recording demos in garages, if it has a dedicated midi it'll be a keyboardists effects processor, there's no sense in getting a vapour chill case if after a year on the road it's got more bangs that guy fawkes night.
Power supply, ideally, (considering you want a fast spinning hard drive, (which take more power), and you want loads of ram, (I assume a cd/dvd recorded to get out your final product, try and get something definitly rated above 350W hopefully 500W or above.
graphics card won't matter cause that'sa not the primary purpose.

Im sick of people saying 'dont waste paper'. If trees wanted to live, they'd all carry guns.
