    Attention computer nuts!

    Post by ErrJon6661 on Mon Oct 08, 2012 3:37 am

    I need some advice and don't feel like dealing with yahoo answers or making an account on a pc forum.

    I'm getting ready to purchase a new pc for a home studio and am considering the following computer.
    http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=2543173&CatId=3380

    I am going with this one because of the ram, processing power and housing. But I am not computer savvy. So if anyone has better but similar options I'm open.

    Fyi I'm likely going to install a small ssd hard drive, as well as a more ram.

    Also the computer will be running 2 monitors as well as 4-6 external usb devices.

    As long as you already have an OS to install that looks good to me. If you don't mind me asking what size ssd and for what purpose? If you're planning on running out of memory on the installed hard drive I would imagine the plan is likely to go way over the TB and an ssd of any size is an expensive route to go (relatively speaking).

    It'd be relatively small, something like 128gb.

    SSD's have faster data transfer than standard hard drives. So in the application of recording current projects are stored on ssd's so that when they are open the work fast. Non active projects and the os as well as any other files are stored on the tb hdd.

    That makes perfect sense. Well played. I don't know much about current software you'd be working with but that hardware is priced well. A long as moo customer reviews raise red flags I think you have a winner

    There are none hahaha. I've looked everywhere. But after doing some research on the company and other products there seem to be no major complaints. They're also a US based company which is great seeing as I'm in the US.
