Latest fast and powerful audio workstation based on Intel Core 2 Duo processor

These days I am busy assembling a new powerful audio workstation for one of my friend. The robust system is consists of the following:
  1. Intel Media Series Desktop Board DG965WH
  2. Intel Core 2 Duo Processor E6600, LGA775 Pkg. 2.40 GHz, 4MB L2-Cache, 1066 MHz FSB
  3. Transcend 4GB DDR2 RAM 800 MHz ( 4 x 1GB DIMM's )
  4. Sony 1.44 inch Floppy Drive
  5. Seagate SATA ST3250824AS 250Gb x 2 ( Total 500GB )
  6. LiteOn 20X DVD/CD Writer and Rewriter
  7. Microsoft Wireless Optical Desktop 700
  8. iBall Cabinet with Extra Chassis Fan Model: - Work Horse (SILVER)
  9. Power Safe 400 Watts SMPS Gold
  10. Samsung Sync Master 940NW 19" wide LCD monitor
  11. Windows XP Professional with SP2

The system mentioned above is really very fast and stable. Since we all know that audio applications require more CPU processing power and RAM to run properly, iBall WorkHorse Cabinetthis system provides ample memory for vsti plugins to load samples and tracks. You should be aware that while using a multi-track recording software the increase in the number of audio tracks increases load on CPU because all the processing takes place in real time ( no pre-rendering). If you are using vst or dx plugins such as delay, reverb, compressor etc as inserts, they further add to processing consumption. Then comes the load of vsti which are very popular these days in making music tracks.
So in order to work smoothly you need a powerful system and the configuration mentioned above will be helpful.
