I was wondering that also. My wife built this computer and I know it's a very fast souped up job. I will ask her but I am quite certain she built this for me so I could do studio quality recording so I am quite sure that it is more than adequate.
That is one reason we don't have an Audigy sound card. Unless something has changed very, very recently, although they made it sound like it did, but they did not record at 24/96. I believe some editing was possible at that rate, but not recording. This led to a lawsuit over faulty advertising. I use a studio quality sound card by Echo Audio, the Mia 24/96.
Anyway, I'm just trying to take some steps so I have some kind of success with this,this time, or I will probably dump it and never return, which I really don't want to do.
Think I'll count backwards from 10 to 1 now
