*edit* just saw the pc build thread, can not see a delete thread option.
So me and a friend are doing some recording with some of the music we're creating. Our laptops work, but we've thought about building a desktop for the sole purpose of recording. I figure we can skimp pretty much everywhere except ram. Current gen mobo and proc of the lowest speed, or maybe even last gen depending on cost, but we might want a lot of memory. HD space would be the biggest thing I'm guessing.
Any ideas on what I should skimp on and focus on spending the money on? I figure sound card onboard would actually be fine, as we already have a pre-amp that plugs in. So we have external devices for audio interfacing. It's just the pc itself.
