    Whatever card you choose, make sure you try it with your setup and a TYPICAL arrangement first.

    I didn\'t and now I\'ve had to remove the audio facilities in Logic just so that I can get 120 note polyphony.

    Check this out for some \'retail\' guidance on Giga demands:

    Wow. Somebody\'s making a ton of money.

    PIII 800 MHz.- 100/133 FSB - $254.00
    768 MB of RAM - Micron PC133 CL2 (3 x $347.39) $1042.17
    7200 RPM Ultra DMA 40GB - From MAXTOR - Hitting 43.2 MB/Sec media speed - $149.00
    18.9 GB Cheetah SCSI Ultra 160/10000RPM - Good marketing, still hitting at BEST - 40.2 MB/Sec media speed (they call it Internal Formatted Transfer Rate) - $440.00 (best price on PriceWatch)
    MIDIMan Delta 1010 - $699.00 (from Zzounds)
    WinMan 4x4 - $169.00 (from Zzounds)
    Windows 98 SE (tweaked for digital audio - Huh? What does that mean?) - $89.00
    Mouse - $49.00 (that\'s for a darn good mouse)
    Keyboard - $40.00 (likewise)
    Mid-tower case $59.00 for an Enlight (good case)

    Around $2990.00 his cost @ RETAIL! I imagine he\'s getting parts at wholesale. I\'ve even included both harddrives, with the cheapie Maxtor outperforming the Cheetah. At $3995.00 complete, this guy\'s making more than a 35% margin. I bet other retailers would love to make that kind of profit for computers.

    I have always thought about building DAWs on the side. Only problem is I\'d need some capital to get started, but I really think I could compete with some of these guys.
