Re:Anybody see a red flag in this custom built PC for running X1? (Geekbench Report)
I am in the process of building a new system, for DAW work and others. I was going to do it later this year but my DAW system motherboard bit the dust. My system is "overkill" but later on down the line I will be glad I went overboard at the start (that is my advice when someone asks me about a new computer - buy overkill or as much as your wallet can stand).
My new system: ASRock Z77 Professional motherboard, i7 3770 CPU, liquid cooler, 128GB SSD and 1TB hard drive, 16GB of GSkill RAM, 750 watt fully modular power supply, two LG optical drives, Corsair Carbide 500R case, etc.
Franklin D-10 Pedal Steel Guitar (primary instrument). Dobro, Tele, Gretsch Chet Atkins, 4 and 5 string basses, etc.
ASUS ROG Maximus VIII Hero M/B, i7 6700K CPU, 16GB Ram,SSD and conventional hard drives, Win 10 Pro and Win 10 Pro Insider Pre-Release
Sonar Platinum 64 bit. MOTU 896MK3 Hybrid, ISA One, Tranzport, X-Touch, JBL LSR308 Monitors,
