    I'm looking to upgrade my PC, partly because I can't seem to get rid of clicks/pops from my motu firewire... Tried just about everything.
    And of course I'd like a faster machine for my Cubase use...

    Anyone using a combination of the 828 and UAD-1, with no problems? and if so - which Mobo/CPU do you use?

    I'm currently thinking of an Asus a8v Deluxe (AGP) + Athlon 64 single core, but any recommendations are very welcome...

    You might want to avoid the newer x2 amd chips, there is a post somewhere on this forum and alot of people are having serious problems with freezing and crackling. I have just an MSI neo2 platinum with a AMD 64 3000+-they are dirt cheap, overclockable and rock solid

    Ok, Thanks for the info.

    It seems though, that UAD-1 should have solved some issues with version 4.0 of their software, regarding firewire interfaces and dualcore.
    Hope it's true.

    Same setup, using Gigabyte K8NS Ultra939 with AMD 4000+ and have absolutely no problems. The mobo acccepts X2 with BIOS upgrade, sowhen X2 prices come down a little, I'll go that route.
