Thanks for the info, I'll post a spec here when I get closer to a final to get some feedback tho it feels like this thread isn't getting so much traffic.

Couldn’t be happier, rock solid machine, running Win10Pro
Daniel, what was the budget you were working to with the X299 board?

I asked the wrong question... Oops...

I meant the budget for the build. I'm price comparing builds based on x99, x299 and z370 boards.

Hi everyone...its been ages since I stopped by here. As a Control 24 owner, I am still happily using PT 10 on Win 7 Pro. Have been thinking about upgrading the PC but have some concerns:
1) Will PT 10 work fine with Win 10?
2) What is the best Mobo/Processor/Memory/VidCard currently available that will continue to be compatible with my PT10 and RST plugs?

Thanks in advance

Hello everybody

This is my very first post on this forum.
I was hoping to find some opinions about the parts I have put together for my future studio computer.

So let's get in to it.
I am going to be using an apollo x8.
I intend to use Windows 10 and Pro Tools 11.

So the computer parts that I have put together goes as follows:

Motherboard: ASUS TUF X299 MARK 1 (Socket-2066)
CPU: Intel Core i7-7820X Processor
RAM: Corsair Vengeance LPX DDR4 4000MHz 32GB
Storage: Samsung 970 EVO 1TB M.2 SSD
Cooling: Noctua NH-D15
Power: Corsair RM650x
Video card: ASUS GeForce GTX 1060 3GB Phoenix
Thunderbolt 3 card: ASUS ThunderboltEX 3

As you can tell - it's quite a little beast.
Does this look good to you guys?
Is there anything that you would change up?

Let me know!

Cooler: Noctua NH-D15

Let me know if you think everything looks good or if you'd change anything.

Thank you!

I'm just about to order a new computer to use with Windows 10 Home (64bit) + Pro Tools 2018.7. Going to use it with my Avid Omni + HD Native PCIe card.
I'm going for raw power as I will be using quite a few VI's in realtime (no freezing).

- CPU : Intel Core i9-7940X Processor
- RAM : Crucial DDR4 2400MHz 32GB
- Disk : Samsung 970 EVO 500GB M.2 SSD
- PSU : EVGA GQ 850W Hybrid Modular 80+ PSU
- Mobo : ASUS Prime X299-A, Socket-2066
- Cab : Chieftec 19" 3U UNC-310RS-B-OP
- CPU cooler : Noctua NH-D15 CPU Cooler
- Graphics card : Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1060 3GB Mini ITX


Looks like the motherboard only has 3xPCIe-x16 lanes, but that should be fine for my setup. The graphics card above will go in one lane and the HD Native PCIe card will go in the second. So that should leave one lane free.



Just one question. Is PCIe-x16 3.0 backward compatible with the HD Native PCIe card?



Also apreciate any feedback regarding possible issues with the setup above. Thanks.

Is it better to avoid motherboards with two network ports when using Pro Tools?
I se alot of the x299 boards from Asus has this.
