I too, have a pc for synths, though I use a emu 1820m
which comes w a sampler

sampletank
kontakt
imposcar
absynth
korg legacy
z3ta
arturia
minimonsta
spectrasonics

i use chainer to play the vsti's

and virus indigo on my protools rig

never have a problem and it allows me to stay w a apple G4
for my HD rig, more cards, more hard drives

I generally like my fantomX and my motif better than
soft synths, they just sound better and work in a mix better

that said if you are interested in soft synths check out KVR
it is THE site for vsti, as someone said there are lots of cheap and free ones, and more on pc (windows)
a dell or some such would work fine for softsynths

cheers
