    New Computer

    What up guys?
    I am just getting into production and recording and I need a new computer. I am just wondering what you guys think I should get. I was thinking either; a new mac G5, or building a custom PC. If i were to build a PC it would be much cheaper, and a more versatile machine, however, I always hear that macs are the way to go. I guess my real question is this: are macs really worth the extra costs, and what are the downsides to a PC with a lot of RAM? Thanks a lot.

    If you have the money for a G5, by all means get it. Macs are alot better for recording. If you are going the pc route, a good PC recording computer is something around a Pentium 4 3.0 GHZ with a gig of ram.

    Nothin wrong with a souped up pc. All you'll really have to worry about is the blue screens of death, and that's nothing a 3 minute google search won't solve. You could build 5 super-music pc's for the price of a G5. With the money you'll save by building you can get hella amounts of external storage/backup and hardrives/dvd-rw's incase something goes wrong.

    But if you're not pc savy roll with the g5.
    I'm the sickest linguistically, illicit lyrical misfit, in the business
    And probably in existence. What's your consensus?

    If you like and use mac's already then you'll be getting a mac, since you asked this question I assume you dont use mac so it will only cause headaches trying to learn a new OS/way of doing things.
