Besides his remark that AMD systems main bottleneck is the chipset/controller tells me more then enough about his knowledge of computers systems.
an AMD G34 system can fit on a normal ATX-form factor tower chassis, yes you have one cpu fan more, noise is however completely neglible and you are able to passively cool the CPU, provided you use a large (but very silent) case cooler.
the G34 MB's and octocore AMD's are already on the market...and quite affordable too.
being an appplication engineer for worlds largest OEM and ODM motherboard manufacturer and having tested more then 3000 systems over the last 7 years I think I know a little about this and yes I do tend to ignore comments that strike me as plain fanboyism or even worse, marketing.
Don't get me wrong, I am a happy Intel user myself, but read the starters post, DG is on a budget, he needs to get the best performance he can get for thwe money he has to spend, is the i5 you mention a better performer then the AMD you can get for the same price? And you're all shooting off AMD based on vaguely described arguments from an Intel systems integrator?
Show me the benchmark, show me the price and I'll be happy to change my opinion.
and eh..oyea, server/workstation system is ridiculous for a DAW? what does the last letter of DAW stand for?
btw, very strong arguments in your post Johnny!!
who is Kees and why is he so special?
