Re: Build ideas?

Tell me more, Crash. Sure, we don't have enough information yet, but I'd like to know more about your doings.

I still need to find out what hardware he will install in it for studio work.

What if we upped his budget to 1200? I should think they could open things up a bit...

That machine I built close to a year ago was about $850 in parts. The $500+ DSP card and 4U rackmount case were transplanted/reused. The rest was new (mobo,cpu,ram,gfx,psu, odd,hdd). His goal was to keep it under $1000 and with the "friend" discount for my time, effort researching and assembly/testing, we made made it just under budget.

I knew what my guy had for a setup, both software and hardware wise. He was also very clear about what he wanted/needed. That made it easier for me, although we went through several prospective "parts lists", all through Newegg.
