howdy folks I came across this site when I was researching my DAW, now I have compiled and built the following: ASUS a7n8x-e Deluxe Motherboard AMD XP 2500+ Retail 2x Corsair 512mb 3200XL DDRam 10gig System Disk 2x 200gb Seagate SATA (Striped) Matrox G550 M-Audio Audiophile 2496 Antec Sonata Case Think that about wraps it up... Been using it for a while now without any trouble, but I purchased a USB Midi Controller and it wouldnt work. I tested it on another computer I have here (AMD/ASUS a7v333) and it worked. Through a bit more research and talking with ASUS + M-Audio there is an inconsistancy in the USB controller (MCP-T) on the Motherboard, which cannot be fixed. So now I need a new motherboard, I would like to only purchase the motherboard, but if i need to switch to an Intel setup I will.. Anyone got any ideas on what I should get?
