Default Re: Creation Station from Sweetwater

I wanted a Creation Station but could not afford it. So I looked at the specs, bought all of the EXACT same hardware (even the exact same rackmountable computer chasis) and built my own Creation Station. A bit unethical but they have that baby marked way up. I spent about $600-$700 buying the materials to build it, and about 3 hours to build it. Works fantastically! It's a very nice computer that I would recommend to anyone wanting a dedicated studio PC. Plus the fact that it can house an HD system if you ever decide to upgrade is a bonus. What made me really want it is that my studio is a mobile studio, and moving my PC around with me was a lot of wear and tear on the machine. With the Creasion Station, I mounted it in one of my ten space gators and am good to go! Definitely a go ahead from me!

I went through a bunch of different online computer parts stores. Central Computer, and Newegg being the most used. Email me at jsswtpmp182@hotmail.com if you want a complete list.

No matter how you slice it, a Creation Station is ONLY available with Pentium processors.
I had a Creation Station, and I now have an AMD dual core home build.
I'll never look back.
For the money Sweetwater wants for a Creation Station, you can easily build (or have built) either a dual core or quad core AMD machine, and either will blow any Sweetwater computer out of the water.
