PS: Does anyone know about building computers ( i mean getting a tech at a computer store to assemble the
parts you want ).......Seems to me this could be less or more expensive---but instead of wandering from
store to store disappointed by " this one has this, but that one has that " and worrying about a trivial $100 or two
....you get to call the shots about each important specification....and get something really designed for audio purposes.
Instead of a desk top that is powerful, but powerful for Gaming.....Gentlemen, let's not play games here---better to operate a computer designed for music
Thanks to Everyone
I build my computer myself and managing the systems. You get much better performance and DAW computer and you can specific quality components into your setup. You need still to know "what" quality component to add into the setup.
Also you need still have a lot of "knowhow", how to do it so its not for everyone especially the novice user or if you have no experience with electro engineering.
I would recommend you have someone that guide you "how to do it safe" the first time. Also read up and check a lot of videos on Internet before you decide to build yourself.
Its important you don't touch specific parts with your fingers. Otherwise you can basically destroy the electro components and everything, ending up to being a costly experiment instead.
Use high-quality antistatic gloves all the time especially working around with the CPU, memory, motherboard and cards..
Take your time "months" and gather so much info before you begin order component and building the computer.
To make a great DAW computer I recommends these high-quality component manufactories.
