Yes, correct you all are. Great news group by the way!
I'm thinking Maudio delta 1010 or a MOTU 2408mk3 with sonar 4 on a simple
AMD setup. What would be more advantagious 939 or 754? If it lasts a few yrs
I'll be happy.  If  I can record hundreds of 24 bit mixes before she kicks
I'll be happy. By then I'll come in here and I'll look and ask again for the
next bitching amd combo.
I appreciate all input so far. Also, cpu and motherboard combo...what around
500.00 should get me something decent... right?

You don't need that good of a processor.

Skimp on the mobo/CPU (go NForce 2 and duron) and spend the extra money on a
good sound card.

500$ is probably ok if you don't need a monitor.
