I am currently planning to upgrade my Dual-core 2.6 GHz machine, 2GB RAM.
Requirements and reason to upgrade :
Audio recording, working on CPU hogging apps like FL Studio, Nuendo, Ableton and the likes...
Config I have frozen on :
Intel i7 930 processor
Intel 58SO Motherboard
4GB Transcend RAM
Need your help on deciding : suitable cabinet and a SMPS/PSU.
Reason for confusion :
I was asked by the shop guys to go in for a 700W SMPS which costs Rs.1350, and cabinet (extra expenditure)... This overshoots my budget by quite a lot.
Now ...On the contrary, is a Intel Core i5 sufficient enough to run the applications I have mentioned above?
Hoping for your replies on the same.
AK (Confused soul, for now)
