Default I'm thinking of getting a Dell XPS 8930

I think someone on this forum is using one.
It has an i7 8700
8gb ram(gonna upgrade to 32gb)
! TB HDD
450watt PSU.
I will add SSD's and upgrade the psu and add HDDs
What do you think Thanks,Bill

Let me confirm the specs after you´ve upgrade:

CPU: i7 8700
RAM: 32GB
Drives: SSDs and HDDs. Make sure that the HDDs are a minimum
of 7200rpm. The 5400rpms are only good for storage and back-up
(check my sig for more info).
Ports: Nearly a dozen 3.1 / .0s - Awesome! Definitely enough.

Do you already have an audio interface?

Yeah, you´re good to go, mate.

No problems.

Just make sure to keep the samples off the OS drive
and that the OS drive is a 7200rpm or a SSD.

Thanks All the HDDS are 7200 rpm
Hopefully I can use one of the sample drives I already have,in the new Machine.
Can I download and install libraries I already have using the IC, without being on composer cloud.I bump in and out of composer cloud.
