  Using an Nevada GForce on my DAW and no problems there.

  Using the Mobile Intel(R) 965 Express Chipset Family  on my Dell Latitude 
laptop and no problems, there either.

  Have had these with JAWS 7, 8, 9, and 11. I refused to have anything to do 
with 10.

    Hi all,

    This is the type of discussion I was hoping for.  Basically, has anyone had 
any experience with NVIDIA cards and whether there are compatibility issues 
with JFW?  Are there recommended and not recommended brands of cards?

    Thanks again for all the help so far.

    Will

      Yes, as long as one can separate the wheat from the chaff. 

      Shame on FS for giving out bad info. They, if anyone, should know their 
product and its issues with hardware. Shame, I say!

        I've changed the subject line because I'm addressing a specific part of 
the "buying a new system" thread.

        Sorry to be late on this one, but the last time I purchased a laptop, I 
contacted FS about sound and video card compatibility. They wouldn't volunteer 
brand names and types. When I told them the particular video card that came by 
default with the laptop that interested me, they assured me it would work fine 
with JAWS. It didn't, and I had to obtain a replacement soon after my purchase. 

        In short, Dave and Will, this list might be a better source of 
information for answers to this vexing question.

        Will,

        w/r sound card and video card compatibility, that's a much better 
question directed to Freedom Scientific. They should know, if anyone does.

        Go for dual core processors. Frankly given what you described I'd 
recommend a desktop. Get two hard drives, identical size,at least 1Tb  and 
server-class for reliability. Have one drive be a mirror of the other so that 
you are always backing up everything you do.

        Windows 7 Pro, and you might as well start working in 64-bit mode.

        The biggest cause of failure in a PC is heat. That's why laptops often 
have a shorter life -- it's hard to get all that heat out. Get a desktop with 
large, slow-moving cooling fans and a dedicated fan for the processor, and at 
least 50% more power supply than needed. All these will help immensely to get 
the heat out of the cabinet.

        All these fans and extra power capacity will likely add ~$200 to your 
budget. 1Tb drives in server class are around $180 each. Expect to spend ~1800 
or up depending on any DVD burners (also a good idea for data backup) and other 
peripherals.

        Dave

          Hi Joseph,

          Thanks for your speedy replies.  In the past I've heard people talk 
about JFW not liking certain video and sound cards.  Is this an issue anymore?

            Hi,
            If you are looking for a laptop, try ones from companies such as 
HP, toshiba, Gateway and so on. In my view, I would say a modest processor 
(around 2 to 2.4 GHz), a modest RAM (around 2 to 4 GB) and a good sized hard 
drive size (around 250 to 400 GB) and so forth. As for operating system, try 
Windows 7 Home Premium or Professional. As for choice between 32-bit or 64-bit, 
it is really up to you.
            Hope this helps.

            Hey Joseph,

            Haha...good point.  I'm primarily looking at laptops, though if 
there's a
            better option in desktops, I wouldn't rule that out either.

            Thanks,
            Will
