First gen Presonus Faderport is a great option(second hand are less than $100) If you need more faders, Command8 or Artist Mix and Transport. There are a few other options as well, so describe your needs and your budget for better advice
Gigabyte X79/intel i7 3930K, 32GB RAM, HD/Native, 192 IO

The better I drink, the more I mix

BTW, my name is Dave, but most people call me.........................Dave

Depending on your space/budget I would say go ICON. You can get a used D-Command or a D-Control for very good prices right now. Either will work great for PT8. They were built to last and aren't hard to service.

Since I've been on ICON pro tools is such a different experience. I'm gonna stay on my D-Control as long as I can.
