Default Hi, New, Need help ASAP.. got a limited time deal on PT10

Hello guys,

So, I have a limited time deal on PT 10, and I have read up on the system requirements, but I am still not sure if my computer can run PT 10. I really want this, as I have been a major Reason user for about 6 years, along with recording engineering jobs at Performing Arts centers for a college, which used Pro Tools extensively. I have never been able to get Pro Tools because of the interface issue, and have always had other company interfaces.

Basically, I would like to know if my system will run PT10, so can someone help me out?

Here's my system information:

I made a different list above because the previous was way too long. I decided I gave a lot of redundant and not needed information, but I still would love an answer!

I would love to!

However, I don't have an iLok. I have a Reason 6 authorization usb, but PH decided they didn't want to use the iLok format for some reason.

Personally, I would go ahead and get an iLok. You'll need it someday anyway
