As mentioned in previous threads, I'm about to purchase a new PC (running windows 7, 64
bit, 16GB RAM, SSDs, Cubase 6.5, BFD, waves, LASS, Ivory etc.) from one of the specialist
music PC builders (which builder is yet to be decided!). It's important that whatever I
get can deliver ultra reliable low latency performance.
Just thinking about
mobos and processors... I am drawn to the Intel i7-2600 processor but I do recall reading
that that there were problems marrying the RME PCI card (which accompanies my Multiface 2)
with some mobos due to lack of native PCI support, and I think perhaps with Sandy Bridge
in general. Does anyone know any more about all this? If it came to it, I could just buy
the RME PCIe card but of course I'd rather avoid the expense!
The PC packages
I'm presently looking at use one of the following motherboards: Gigabyte Z68, Asus P8H77-V
or Asus P8Z77-V LE. I'm wondering if any one of those is likely to work better with my
Any opinions/thoughts welcome.
