I am about to build custom computer for Cubase 6.
I was on a Mac but planning to cut cost and have a powerfull machine for East West Samples, Recording 24 Channels and Mixing With plugins.
I am looking at the CPU’s to start. i7 990 is almost double in price to 2600k. The benchmark only shows 10% difference.
Is it really necessary to have top of the line CPU? Which processor anyway is right below the top and suitable for cubase?
