I've just bought this for just under £700:

AMD Phenom 9950 AM2+
4GB Ram
500GB Hard Drive
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 280 1GB
Microsoft® Windows Vista Home 64-bit
650W Thermaltake Toughpower
3 Year Bronze Warranty

@ Andrew: I would serious suggest upgrading that PSU to maybe a 1000W. Otherwise you might find your system slightly unstable. I could be wrong, but if you're spending that much what is an extra £50 to upgrade the PSU?

Yah, you might be right - I'll see how it goes! I based it on a music PC spec I found on the web and forgot to up it when I added a couple of drives. I have the PSU already though so I'll give it a go and get a better one if necessary - thanks for the advice!

Just buy a MacPro, 8 cores... standard.
And if you really want (can't imagine why), you can even run Windows on it wink.gif

Mac OS has Core audio built in, which I think is better than audiosupport in Windows.

And Matt is my hero for broadly similar reasons - he just needs to keep his mind more on shark fishing than the boring kind ...

Things are so much cheaper in America. Your PC would cost double what you are paying here.

Yeah, its a big part of why I moved over here - everything is cheaper (although prices are rising at the moment) and taxes are lower.

I took a pay cut in absolute financial terms but more than made up for it because of those 2 facts, so in quality of life terms I got a decent pay rise wink.gif

I could cry lol. I'm moving to Japan which is better for prices on some things and worse on others. Maybe I should think about this biggrin.gif
