you're giving out some good and useful advices, but the article may be overlooking an important component of any DAW computer: the soundcard. shouldn't it be the main device to focus on?

Ya this article misses a LOT of basic stuff indeed. Like dual, quad, 6 and 8 core machines, OS overhead and it's optimization. A 5200 RPM drive is NOT good, as 7200 are as plentiful as mosquitoes. RAID drives and SSD drives are all cool. Well some of the article was good. Like two monitors is a very nice help. USB 3 and SATA 3 should be looked at. Okay it STARTED out okay. Oh hell it was terrible. Sorry... It is an older article too.

Hello,

For the disk part, i also recommend buying a solid state drive, this will give a huge boost to reading / writing speeds especially for those who use VST samples.

My question is only how would a person who works primarily with Apple know anything about PC components? Apple does not allow you to build a machine from scratch.
