Some years ago, I remember we had to choose a motherboard with an Intel chipset, because it worked much better than motherboards using the Via chipset, which caused many problems with the audio interfaces, and of course, the sequencer.
I soon will be assembling a new computer, to replace my old setup, based on an old 2.66MHz Pentium 4.
Is it okay, today, to use an Intel,via,nvidia,etc based motherboard, with windows 7 64bit? Or is there a chipset that works much better than the others, with cubase and any audio interfaces ?
I want to get a Intel i7 3770k processor, which is not that expensive, compared to any Xeon processor, and still performs perfectly well.
So please, guys, could you do me a favor and tell me which motherboard you are using, which ram(exact brand, type and frequency, for example, Geil evo corsa 2400), the audio interface you have, with the actual buffer size, the windows version you have(windows 7 or 8, 32 or 64bit), and also the hard drive type(sata3,ssd,SCSI, raid).
It would be really nice to know what your PC setups are, so I can build a nice and stable PC, for using with the cubase 7 I will be buying this month, or until the end of march.in advance, a big Thanks.
