Hi All! I think my new hangout will be here since I 'retired' from playing live for awhile. I'm planning on buying a new PC for audio and midi recording. I'll probably will be using Reason 3.0 along with CoolEdit Pro or Ableton Live. I'll be getting a fast Pentium 4 or Pentium D with at least 1 gig ram so I don't think speed and memory will be an issue. My question is on graphics. A fews years ago the recommendation was to avoid shared graphics memory and to purchase a seperate graphics card. Is shared graphics memory still an issue when the processor speeds are so high now and with 1 gig or more of ram? Thanks for your comments.
