Sorry to put in my $.02, but why does everyone insist on using WinAmp? It's horrible bloated software.
My opinion is, since you are going to take the dive. Do it right from the start. Purchase a better computer. There cheap on ebay a good p4 2.4 ghz can be had for about $150.00 (when you lucky) Dell SX260. You are going to spend all the money on power supplies and other stuff. Do it right and chip in the extra 100 - 200 bucks and get the right computer as well.
Just my opinion
winamp IS bloated - use a very very old version. the old version is very very sleek and efficient - doesnt hog your computer.
Duct tape and a Bandana for the win, b!shes!!!
Cost so far: Less than a grand ;]
Economy/Commuter cars + Computers = many entertained miles
I use the newest Winamp on a PIII 600 with 256RAM and it runs quickly w/o any hitches....
I don't know what you all are talking about "bloated"....
Ah, winamp is for lazzy coderz dudes.... bass.dll rul3z
Now Galileo is real. Muhahahahaha :p
