I have thought about this, but it is the whole package I need. Hardware
& Software.

My current system has on-board graphics & sound and is OK for a bit of
document work or Internet use but quite inadequate for much else.
Rosegarden by itself takes up 50% processor bandwidth just running 11
tracks. Added to this I have an ailing CD ROM drive so there is little
point in trying to patch this up.

I really want to get a system that will serve me for a considerable
time. I'm OK about upgrades and addittions, but starting from scratch
is way beyond me.
