Default Re: Help me decide if and how to upgrade my computer


I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but your computer is pretty underpowered in many respects for trying to run PTMP 8. In my opinion, I wouldn't spend any more money on your current computer. Use your M-Box and 7.4 until you can save enough money to build a new computer.

Read the i7 thread (it is very long) in the PTLE section to see what will work. You need more CPU, more and faster memory, hard drives with 32 MB cache and run at 7200 rpm, etc.

Good Luck,
Intel i7 3930K, Gigabyte GA-X79-UP4 (rev 1.0), 32 GB Corsair Vengeance 1600 ram, EVGA Nvidea GT 720 TI video card, a Samsung 850 Pro (256 GB) OS drive, 2 Samsung 850 Pro's (512 GB) in externally mounted drive bays for session and sample storage, Win 10 Pro, PT Ultimate (Native)2019.10, HD Omni, HD I/O 16x16 .
