I have a $400 budget and I need the following: 1) New Soundcard (currently have Soundblaster Pro 64 AWE ISA w/ 64 meg onboard memory -- card is about 6+ years old) 2) New DSL modem (currently have a SpeedStream 5620 -- about 3 years old, no firmware upgrades available, model no longer supported and it seems to be getting more and more unreliable by the day) If possible, I would like to have enough left over for some memory. I could really use another 256 meg. From what I've priced modems at I'm looking at about $75 - $100, and the soundcards that I looked at ranged between $150 and $300. I have no way of purchasing online, so I'm stuck with a local retailer, but the place I usually go to is pretty decently priced and has an awesome selection. The memory I need is $46. I use my computer for a lot of audio recording/mixing/editing. Any suggestions?
