I’ve been running an ASUS P9X79 Deluxe platform for a short while now and It’s Smokin’!
I do have to point out that you have to practice due-diligence when researching and assembling the right components!!!
You can have an otherwise rock-solid system, only to be foiled by a flakey driver! So, the other components, such as your audio card, or other add-ons can also be (and usually are) a source of much frustration!
Look at my signature below… I can tell you that these components are working well so far, but this system wasn’t cheap!
Check this motherboard carefully… It has no legacy PCI slots, but does have two PCIe 1x slots! You will have to take that into consideration if you plan to carry over any older components from your old DAW! Also no onboard Firewire, but you can add that on!
