New PC build
      #1021992 - 03/12/12 11:13 AM
First, my apologies if there is a dedicated thread for this kind of discussion. If there is I couldn't find it.

Anyhow,

As my projects get more intense my laptop is cutting it less and less. Finally time for the new computer I think. What do you all think about this? I'd love to get some feedback before I order.

I'll be using this for Reason 6.5 and ProTools 10. And with a Focusrite Liquid Saffire 56 once I get that.

Spec looks all good. You'll probably want a dedicated FW card with a Texas Instruments chipset for plugging that liquid 56 into (they are rather fussy) but otherwise I can't see much wrong with it as it stands.
