This is my first posting....and I am SO GLAD to be here!!! Thank you for being out there!!!
Ok. I want to build a computer that will accomodate my goal of having a system that is specifically for Dj/musical use. I don't know much about the hardware of a computer or what I need to make it happen---which is why I am posting here today!
Here is what I will need to be able to do....
I want to be able to rip my CD's (about 500) to the computer so I can have access to all of my music at the click of a buton.
I need to be able to use Dj software programs (many of them require a computer with WIN XP and lots of memory, etc.) that allow me to learn how to mix, remix, edit and so on, the music and then burn my own CD. (I have a lot to learn as far as Dj software is concerned, but I am SO EXCITED!!) **I wanted to mention that this computer would never be connected to the web.**
Anyhow, I have been advised to buy a MAC G5 or Powerbook (I have never even seen a MAC in person).......to buy a DELL that is "souped up", order a PC thru alienware.com or voodoo.com---but it looks really $$$$$. I also checked out eBay, but again, I do not know what to look for.
So, I am willing to purchase the right pieces of hardware in order to build my own computer, but I humbly need to request your assistance and expertise.
Thanks for your time and I hope that you have a great weekend!!
