Alright, here’s the deal. I’ve been doing all my tracking on a 1.2 gHz iBook. It sucks. It’s slow, unreliable, and in general is failing the job at hand. I need a new machine for audio recording. I want something on par with this and I can build it with those exact specs’ (even a similar case) for a third of the price. That’s right, a third of the price! So, my question is this: Is there anyone out there desiring a Sweetwater RACK XT DAW equivalent for cheap? You pay $1850, I pay $600. I build two, you keep one. This machine wouldn’t be limited to audio either, you could play some wicked fast Halo, check your MySpace, and Photoshop your head on some buff dudes body at the same time!

Any takers?

EDIT:

Here’s the specs:

CODEGEN 4U Rackmount Case
ASUS DELUXE/WIFI-AP LGA 775 Intel Motherboard
ASUS SILENT GeForce 8600GT Video Card
Antec 500W Power Supply
Intel Core 2 Quad 2.4GHz Quad-Core Processor
4GB G.SKILL DDR2 800 Memory
3 SAMSUNG 500GB 7200 RPM SATA Hard Drives (1 Sys’, 2 RAID)
Logitech Wireless Keyboard & Mouse
ASUS 20X DVD Burner with LightScribe
ZALMAN CPU Cooler

If you’re looking for a different kind of deal, I can design/illustrate flyers/posters/album covers, design and develop web sites, and record music (samples).
