So I am think about getting my buddy to build me a computer. And this will be the last big purchase I make in a long time, so I want it to be right. If anyone can answer a few question, and take a look at a few of the pieces of harward, etc, for compatability issues etc...

I am not sure of the graphics card...


And also, I have ProTools 7.0 le on basic M-box 2 that I was running on Xp. Will I be able to upgrade to the lastest version of ProTools and run it on Win 7 with my M-box 2?

Thank you for your time... any help would be great.

thanks,
chris

Hey Chris, not many AMD AM3 users on the DUC. Custom DUC builders typically choose Intel Core i7 these days.

+1!

This thread is worth the read for build info, it's long and some info at the beginning may be outdated so you may want to start at the end first;

PT9 or 10 will run fine on Win7 with MBox2 but PT10 will be the last version to do so.
