Default Re: Please Help Me Upgrade My Old TDM Rig

I had an HD4 Accel PCI-x in a i5 PC, running 8.1.1 and it was OK, not optimum though. I picked up a 6-slot Magma PE6R4 Chassis on eBay for $325 with PCIe interface card & cables. Then I picked up 2 more Accel cards with flex cable for $90 each on eBay for an HD6. This I put into a i7 PC 4.4Ghz/32Gb/SSD boot/10K RPM spinners, now it's a dadgum hot-rod. Now this Magma chassis will work with your Mac, but your PCIe cards will not. Good news is that the PCI-x Core & Accel cards are cheap and plentiful while the PCIe cards not quite so. Sell your cards on eBay and use that money to get a Magma and PCI-x Core & Accel cards. You can run up to Pro Tools HD10 with I think Mavericks the latest OS. Lot's of available options. Good Luck!
