That's honestly about it! For over 5 years I've been using a basic set up with an HP computer, Windows 7, 64-bit OS and 32 GB of RAM. This simple setup (pictured below) allows me to do all the recording I need.
One more thing to remember: RAM is KING. The more you have, the better. Last I checked, Avid recommends at least 16 GB of RAM in your PC to run your Pro Tools software. However, If you can afford it (and RAM is getting cheaper these days), you should get at least 32 GB - even 64 GB if your computer will hold it. The more RAM you have, the more plugins you can use, your computer will run faster with no lagging and the overall performance will be optimized.
Hope this helps the new users out there!
