Is 2 new Core Duo enough? Desktop Synthesizers

Here for the gear

Is 2 new Core Duo enough?

I'm wanting to build 2 computers to run-
Gigastudio 3
Cubase sx
AND Vienna Instruments SE along with the Sonivox Orchestral library.

I'm thinking of getting 2 Intel core duo pcs, think they're about 2.6gig each, can't remember model number.

If that is sufficient can anyone tell me what should go on what computer?

Was thinking of putting Giga and Cubase on my main sys with xp pro
and putting the sample libraries on the second.

Do I only need to use gigabit lan to make it work?

Not sure how but would appreciate any help, thank you.

FX Teleport might be a solution.

I like to have only one computer (and maybe a spare one for backup). less computer, less problems.

gigastudio seems to be a abit outdated today.. is there no alternative with low latency?

i agree with the previous poster about the giga in 2007. got to be a simpler way. however it all depends upon the software libraries you are using.

vienna now makes available most of their libraries in halion3 or K2 format so you do not require a giga box. i see that kirk hunter also has an extensive orchestral library - 70 gig - in K2 and logic format.

however it appears to me that vienna does not offer all the articaultions in K2 and halion3 formats. hence i went with the kirk hunter library. much simpler to run multiple K2 than a separate giga box. IMHO

as i said it depends upon what library you are using - and for strings at least - how many articualtions you require if going down the vienna path.

all the best
