Computer Specs

Hey guys,

I just purchased the EWQLSO Gold bundle to go along with my Garritan Big Band and VDL 2.5.  I have found that using any of these is a huge drain on my Vista Based Laptop.  I use Sibelius 4 for now but 5 when the template issue is solid.  I have been looking at a few posts on PC's and they seem a bit confusing.  I am PC minded but they don't offer as much info for the purchase of my new comp.  Any solid ideas on speeds the work best for all around composing?  I looked at the pcaudiolabs and soniclabs computers but they had half the power and speed of my built HP and twice the price.

Please take a look at these specs and tell me what you think?
