I am about to upgrade my computer system.
Mainly due to Scott’s enthusiasm [thanks Scott] I have decided to go for the i7 2600 processor.
As ‘Sod’s law’ dictates, a number of problems have arisen with motherboards with P67/H67 chipsets; the recall of all boards due to the SATA degradation issue … but more worrying to me … the issue of the PCIe to PCI bridge not being native to the chipset and the consequences to the performance of PCI audio cards [mine is a SSL/Soundscape mixpander].
Does anyone have an advice/information for me? Are any motherboards less affected than others?
