Absolutely sufficient I'd say I run 50+ tracks projects on half as that.

64Studio 2.0 was the most reliable I ever used. Now I run Debian5.0 plus
Dure:Dyne overlay/kernel. It feels the same as reliable but is not that
solid in terms of integration in the DEbian-Repos so I`d recommend to
build Ardour, Calf, Invada and other important stuff on the machine from

Well--- yes...
in 3 years using a Linux machine as a DAW for approx. 800h I had a
single case of a crash while recording. And no case in witch recorded
material was destroyed by some bogus behaviour of a application.(There
was no material destroyed at all that is...).
It is slightely different when it comes to
editing/arranging/sound-design stuff - big plugins in complex set ups
can have unpredictable effects but crashes in heavy work like this are
seldom still.
