Default Gateway 6400

I am considering buying this server from Gateway for the Digi 001 audio/MIDI hardware/software with Pro Tools LE for Windows 98 Second Edition:

Gateway 6400 case
Intel Pentium III 933/133MHz
dual processor capable motherboard 64/74 1GHz CPU
P A HDD NSCA 9GB 7.2 IBM 64 R0 (9G Ultra SCSI 160 HD)
20X / 48X IDE CD-ROM with rails for 6400
FDD 1.44 PAN DRV for 6400
300W power supply
4M onboard video

The server cost me $500.00. Do you consider this a good deal? What do I need to add to it to make it compatible for the Digi 001?

Thanks for your help.

I can almost guarantee you that you will run into problems with this setup. First of all Digi Design doesn't support dual-processors, ECC Ram has been none to be buggy with alot of audio applications, also 4MB of on-board video will chew up your processor to death. My opinion is to get a custom built system specifically design for the DIGI so that you don't run into incompatibilities.
