I've got everything running that I need running, apart from 1 samplebank which won't work, and also my audio converter won't work, but I have many many other sample banks, and lots of other ways to convert audio, so I'm happy for the time being. It works, which is more than could be said for my previous computers!!

Ermm windows 7 64 bit would have been my best bet - I've never had good luck with XP64..

Good luck with it - /should/ all be working fine, why not go for 32bit windows? As far as i know, XP64 was never really used that much......


This x(a lot). Never had any joy with xp 64, far too much hassle to get apps for it. You will be wanting windows 7 or 64 bit Ubuntu tbh.

Not if you enable memory hole remapping.
 
But I see what you're saying. 32 bit OS's only support up to 4GB's of RAM. Shouldn't really be a problem for most people though.

Oh....and did i say, be very careful when inserting the processor.
Same applies to the Ram boards.
respeks.
PS, i personally never used an anti-stataic wriststrap.
But i guess its good to have.


done it already, she's up and running. but thanks for the advice all the same.

the cooler bit that sits on top of the processor looked like a jet engine. was well cool. has loads of copper pipes on it and looks like it could be some kind of crazy water cooling system

I managed to find a version for 64 bit but it's pretty annoying. got other problems with other programs as well tho that's I('m finding harder to fix. now trying to remember why I'm using 64 bit!!

Try pidgin as a replacement for msn messenger, you won't go back to the ad loaded crapfest that is the official msn client.

I do not know if there is a 64 bit compatible version but I expect there is.
