Default Re: Best Systems and Components for Win HD/TDM

Iíve been happily mixing away on my ASUS P4C800-E deluxe HD3 PCI with Procontrol (built on Nikki Kís advice) for the last 4 years and itís still a very cool system, I got PT8 HD the other day and it works just fine, there does seem to be an increasing reliance on RTAS plugins and having read every post here twice regarding building a new system I still feel I need to ask a question .

i7 is the way to go, incredible power as exhibited by the guys over at the LE build forum with their dverb tests achieving 400 to 500 plugins ...wow!! There arenít too many motherboard choices available for a HD3 PCIx around, Philippe in Belgium (pm mastering studio) has his P7P55D working well it seems and itís my best candidate at the moment. The Supermicro board of Kirkgale and Third Eye Studios seem to be fine with a HD2 but has difficulties with HD3 and I donít want to lose a card.
I did come across this board GA-P55A-UD3R which has 3 PCI slots USB3 etc and it looks very promising
http://www.gigabyte.com.tw/Products/...ProductID=3240 has anyone given it a try? anyone for-see any problems? If this board works then people with HD3 PCIx would at least have a choice for their builds.
