Protools HD4 or HD5
Is it possible to build a PC that could run Protools 10 HD5 with older pcie cards, and a 192. I know I can get a 7 pcie slots motherboard like Asus P6T7 WS or ASUS X99-E WS. Anybody run such a rig?

At the Legacy level it would be best to just get an external chassis

Re: Protools HD4 or HD5
Thanks guys, I'm curious cause at the moment I have running a HD3 pci-x cards, XW8400 16GB, SSD, running Windows 7 SP1 and PT 8.1.1, just that I'm getting annoyed by plug-ins freezing up on me more and more, so I was thinking perhaps going to PT9 on a PCIe setup I could go perhaps up to HD4 or 5. There is motherboard that have 7 pcie slots, but not sure if anyone ever set one up to see if it can work. Also the Magma PE6R4 will only run for PC with serial starting with B2, and they are damn hard to find. Anyway that is my dilemma at the moment.

I once ran a PT 8HD rig with an old 7 PCI-X slot Magma cream-colored expansion chassis. I used a Gigabyte GA-P75-D3 with a Core I7 3770K. I ran it with 4 PCI-X Accel and 2 PCI-X Process cards. I also had 3 PCI-X UAD1 cards directly on the motherboard. It was a great running machine and I only upgraded because UA went to the UAD2 cards which were only PCI-e. Of course, later I moved on to HDX as well. I still have the chassis and HD cards just in case. No reason to think this rig wouldn't have run PT10 HD smoothly either.

I have a Digidesign-branded PCI-x chassis in beautiful shape. PM me if you are interested(some pics in the Buy&Sell section already):o
