I just built a new PC. The specs are:

Antec Solo case
Asus P5K-V Mobo
Core 2 Duo 2.4 ghz
2 GB Corsair RAM
Thermaltake 450 Watt Modular Power Supply (nice for keeping the case clutter free)
500 GB Hard Drives (x2) 1 Tera Byte total storage
Drive 1 is partitioned into 4 drives:
60gb for Vista Home Premium and Software
140gb for music production: samples, loops, etc
60gb for documents, pictures, etc
200gb for Music

Drives 2 is strictly Video

External Hard Drive (x1) 120gb for backup and whatever else

Asus DVD/CD drive
Asus DVD/CD burner with lightscribe
Video Card - XFX Geforce 7300 Nvidia runs 2x 20" flat screens
Audio Card/MIDI interface for music production - Emu 1212M
Case has 2 92mm front fans and 1 120mm rear fan

Bought all parts through New Egg except Video Card (Tiger Direct) and Audio Card (Musicians Friend)

Not one issue with Vista Home Premium I tweaked it and turned off some unnecessary stuff. Runs a home music studio with Ableton Live, Reason 4, and a ton of VST's without a hitch.

Who said you need a MAC?


I haven't over clocked it yet. Haven't had the need too.
