See other threads asking about 2.1 desktop setups but my questions are a little different. Basically I know very little about computer hardware so bear with me.....
What I have right now is an Audiosource AMP-100, a pair of Advent Minis, a homebuilt subwoofer and an external hard drive that holds all my music.
What I am hoping to do is find a older/barebones/dirt-cheap desktop - something along these lines perhaps -
I cannot think of any reason why this particular PC (or something like it) would not be sufficient for music playing (since my music is on an external drive, that is not an issue) and light internet use. (But if I am missing something let me know.)
After that I suppose I would need a soundcard/DAC or something that sends analog L/R signals to the amp and that is my hangup since I have no idea what to look for. Is that something that would need to be installed inside the computer itself, or some kind of standalone module? In case it is not obvious by now, budget for this is pretty small....
Sorry for sounding stupid, I'm not computer illiterate in terms of using them, I just don't know anything about hardware.
