Not enough dials and switches. You need more dials and switches if you want to go pro sound.

cuz the cheapest core i7 is $100 more, and the cheapest core i7 motherboard is $150 more.
this is the very fastest amd processor. it'll be plenty fast I'm sure

My brother has the Emu 1820m, it's a great piece of kit, good enough to output to a high end hifi. I prefer USB equivalents so I can take it with my laptop too.

Yay someone finally built a system to rival/beat mine :D

Gratz man, let me know how the 5870 goes... I've been thinking more and more about grabbing one.
