I am really leaning towards buying the parts to the gigabyte i7 core machine listed in the hardware sticky for noobs because a mac pro is just way to expensive now a days. Yet I am stuck on Mac because I can't break away from Logic.
This will not be for games etc. I have a retail full version Leopard 10.5.1 DVD and also a full retail version of Logic Studio 8. I will also be running Vienna Instruments, Kontakt, Sibelius and other music applications.
Anything I need to be concerned with or this setup going to work like a rock? I will be going with the exact parts that were listed as working under (the new one) in the hardware sticky i7 core gigabyte setup. My Sound card will be RME Hammerfall DSP Multiface 2 with the PCI interface card. Seems my sound card is the only item not on that noob list but I did see it in the HCL.
