High End Audio Editing Computer - 1,500-2,000


Jul 8, 2011
Approximate Purchase Date: within the next couple months

Budget Range:1,500-2000

System Usage from Most to Least Important: Audio Editing (Lots of big sample libraries like VSL), Video Editing

Are you buying a monitor: No

Do you need to buy OS: Yes, I would like to use os X

Preferred Website(s) for Parts: Indifferent

Location: Portland, OR

Parts Preferences: None

Overclocking: No

SLI or Crossfire: I don't know

Your Monitor Resolution: very high, screen real estate is very valuable for audio editing. I might get multiple monitors, but i would prefer one big one.

Why I want to upgrade: I want to run Logic Pro comfortable with lots of midi sample libraries loaded. I have an imac from 5 years ago with 4 gigs of ram, and it crashes often from memory problems. I also would like to score video, so handling large video files simultaneously is important. My guess is that i would benefit from other upgrades besides just memory, hence this post.

Hopefully this is enough information, thanks for any advice!
