Any thoughts on CPU, hard drive size, amount of RAM, proc speed, etc?

In this instance, it would be something of a stripper; nothing but the most fundamental software, Pro Tools or similar, synth sequencer, CD/DVD-ROM burner and MIDI card(s). Maybe a HD video driver, for flatscreen display.

What would a cost/benefit breakdown be, vs. buying one off the shelf?

Please respond; If anyone in music production has experience doing this, I'd appreciate your views.

A basic AMD Athlon64 3000+ box with 512 MB of RAM sufficed for me. I ran Ubuntu Studio as the OS which comes preloaded with alot of tools for audio video and graphics. nVidia Graphics cards work best with that setup. For video and graphics I would up the ram though.

Hard Drive size 200+ GB with room to expand if at all possible
