    OK, so here's where I'm at right now: Gigabyte Z68MA-D2H-B3 i5-2500K or i7-2600K (budget depending) 8GB or 16GB Corsair DDR3 RAM (budget depending) Nvidia GT210 Fractal Design Define Mini Case Corsair CX430v2 PSU OCZ Agility 3 120GB SSD Scythe Mugen 3 Sony Optiarc £555 i5/8GB or £655 i7/16GB...

    Gordo, thanks again for the system you suggested for me. I love the case, I hadn't come across that one before - I think it's now my first choice of case. I guess the SYBA card is for use with the SSD? That model doesn't appear to be available in the UK. Any alternatives? edit* Oh, it's a...

    Thanks Gordo, that's absolutely amazing. I don't need a high spec machine for the kind of audio work that I do, trust me on that. My core2duo actually manages ok. The i7 is more than twice the price of the i3. I may go up to an i5 if my budget allows.

    So here's my current SL setup thinking..: Gigabyte GA-Z68MA-D2H-B3 Intel Core i3-2105 CORSAIR 8GB DDR3 Nvidia GT210 Which comes in at £247.91 using Amazon.co.uk, roughly half my budget. So I have about another £250 to spend on HD, Case and cooling. Am I on the right track?

    OK so here's a question that really does show off my noobishness; do I have to buy the 512mb of ddr3 ram separately and fit it myself, then?

    Ah thanks, the GT210 looks great. It's passively cooled, so no fan noise to worry about and also it's cheap!

    Key factor is stability when running Logic 9. The current consensus is that Snow Leopard is still the preferred option. If I was to go with Lion then a separate graphics card wouldn't be necessary, could just go for hd3000. So I am asking what the graphics situation is on Snow Leopard? Is it...

    Silent, budget build for SL/Logic 9

    OK, fair enough. A standard starting point seems to be: Gigabyte GA-Z68MA-D2H-B3 Fastest processor I can afford after getting a silenced case and lots of big fans and heatsinks etc. If I end up going with Snow Leopard then I'll need to factor in a cheap-but-silent graphics card as well? What's...
