I am about to finally buy this damn computer. I found the one that I wanted for the price I wanted and then the sale ran out and the price went sky high and they sold out of the damn things. BUT!!!!!I found an even sweeter machine for only $50 more. Also on sale. Now the problem is that is says... 16-bit sound "on-board." Now does that throw up a red flag? I have heard that having a sound card attached to a mother board is a problem. Is it a HUGE problem and should it warrent me not buying this computer. The other specs are...
Pent III 933 MHz
256 MB RAM
45 GB Hard Drive (I am buying a seperate HD 7200 rpm Maxtor)
CD-RW Burner 24x4x4 (Slow huh?)
ATI Rage Fury Pro Vivo 32MB with TV-Out (Grafik Card)
16-bit sound "on-board"
133MHz Front Side Bus (No Idea what that means)
Seriel, Parallel,2xUSB,Monitor,Speaker,Microhphone,Line-in, and MIDI/Game port.
MIDI Tower ATX
Now are any of these things bad? Is that "on-board" shit going to make this whole computer shit for recording? I have a Delta-66 Sound card with the Delta Moni I/O break out box that I want to install on whatever computer I buy. Does this "on-board" part make it so that I can not install an external sound card?
Also is that MIDI/GAME PORT good enough to where I do not need my MIDISPORT 2x2 by Midiman?
This is an urgent one. Please answer this oen with God's speed men. My girlfriend has to have this computer in two days. I have stalled her long enough whiel I gathered info on what I MYSELF need to make it work for music. She just needs a word processor to write reports for her University. But she needs it NOW. So please answer ASASP!!!!!! "On-board" red falg? or ok?
