Default Advice for Compatibility of PC and 003 Interface

Hi there,
I used my 003 hardware for so many years with Mac Intel computers. I realized Monterey / M1 is not allowing 003 driver to install even manually. I have a feeling that Windows 10 with PC hardware would be more compatible with 003 and generally with a lot of older I/O devices. I'm trying to custom build a PC and like to have advice wether an AMD from last 2 years or Intel 11th (especially 12th gen) CPU and a motherboard like Gigabyte or MSI Z590 or Z690 or Asus B660-A or F allows proper installation of 003 driver (i.e. if proper handshake between 003 and the computer takes place). I am ok with a bit older hardware as long as they are powerful. Please let me know what computer you are using that A- it works with 003 and B- if it is powerful enough to handle tens of tracks with lots of plugins.
I really appreciate your help.

Pretty sure 003 should work on Win 10/11. Can someone confirm? If you MUST use the 003 on your new build, you'll need to add a good firewire400 card, like SIIG with TI chipset. If building now, I'd get Intel 13th gen i9 i7 or i5. NewEgg says 13th gen release date is Oct 20.
