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). Tele, LP, 4 and 5 string basses, etc.
Gigabyte GA-Z77X-UD5H M/B, i7 3770 CPU, 16GB Ram, Intel HD 4000 Video, SSD and conventional hard drives, Corsair Carbide 500R Case, Win 7 & Win 8.1 64 bit
Sonar X3D PE 64 bit. Octa-Capture and Fast Track Ultra 8R, ART Pro MPA II, Tranzport, BCF2000, JBL LSR308 Monitors
