I’m looking to build a new DAW system:
i7 950 (upgrade to 980x later date)
[is Xeon W3550 better / worse ?]
GA-X58A-UD5 (7, 9?)
24 gigs Kingston Hyper X
3 sata drives (640g) for OS, samples & audio
I like the Gigabyte line as it has TI firewire and I’ve heard that’s the way to go. I have an M-Audio Profire 2626 firewire interface and want to use it to it’s capacity if needed.
Is anyone using these and what kind of performance / issues can I expect?
Any suggestions on power supply wattage or model?
