this stick is more than enough(have SSE2,SSE4.1 .. instruction) and 64bit compatible. with quad-core it take at most 30%CPU to play a fullHD video.

benchmark score 809 same as

but I personally like the desktop so I can put in a RME or Digigram or AudioScience sound card in. and get rid of the cheapn mixers

Ah.. very nice! for someone that has already some sort of karaoke setup...just want to upgrade to the digital system, this stick might be a great choice :)

Those sound cards look really nice... are they expensive? great for karaoke mixing?

yeah those sound card are high quality and stable. they can be run at 32 samples (0.7ms latency) and can run stable with lolaoke at 64 samples(1.2ms) with about 10 vsts load. and total latency of 6ms which is about latency of a digital microphone, human ear can hear no delay at all.

Yes, I singing live on my system at 64samples buffer and on a quadcore Q9500 for few hours without problem. I test it run 128samples for the whole day without problem.

those are expensive 500-700 new , but you can grab a used RME on ebay for about $200.

these are expensive but sound quality very lease to the ears. once you listening to karaoke by vst you wont go back to the PA stuff.
