Agreed... sort of. I don't think you can put together a good reliable
true 64-bit system just yet. On the other hand, the Athlon 64 is also
pretty damn good in 32-bit mode.
I'm typing this on an Athlon 64 system with a purely 32-bit distro on it
(Studio to Go! needless to say) and it works very well for audio use.
It's a laptop, with an Echo Indigo I/O soundcard.

Or get a dual-head digital-out Matrox card and two LCD panels. (The
video cards are dirt cheap, but of course you need to be able to afford
and house two screens.) I don't use that setup on my own desktop, but
I wish I did...
