Default Advice Buying Used TDM Cards

Those of you considering building a TDM Rig, make sure you buy as many core cards as the system you are attempting to build. If an HD2, then get two core cards, vs a core and an accel. This way if your core goes bad, you keep going as a core card can be a core card and/or an accel card.

You can have an HD3 that consists of three core cards. Considering the used price variance is negligible it makes sense!
HD Native Pcie, PTHD 11, PT12 Vanilla, Omni, Lynx Aurora 16, 192 I/O (16 in/8 out), 24 Fader D-Command, lots of preamps and compressors.

MacPro 5.1 (12) Core (2009 MacPro 8 Core Upgraded to a 12 Core MacPro), 56 Gig Ram, SSD System & 3 - 2TB Drives, OSX 10.9.5, Windows 10 Via Bootcamp
