I am shopping for a Windows 7 build, planning on using my pc to make home music recordings. I would like to have something similar too a stereo equalizer so I can alter my recordings to suit my sound preferences. Unfortunately I know very little about this subject and need someone to point me in the right direction for info. Both in parts needed and how it is done. I need to know if I need a system incorporating i7 verses i5, for example. How much power do I need in comparison to a standard build. Does it need as much as is required for gaming (I am not really into gaming).
