Hi all! I was hoping maybe I could get some opinions on a PC I'm going to be building in the near feature. I'm leaning towards Cubase SX3 as my recording app. and FX Expansion's BFD as my main drum solution. I do not have a soundcard picked out yet. (any pointers in this area would also be welcomed ) As of now I have been using my trusty Roland VS1680 and have had some great results with it but I'm thinking that I need an upgrade. I plan on using this machine for work as well (apps include Flash, Premiere, Dreamweaver, Photoshop etc). I have the components picked out so I was hoping if anybody can see any potential problems that could get in the way of my build or if anybody has any suggestions I'd really like to hear 'em.

If any of you guys have any experience with this graphics card I'd really like to hear it. Also I'm concerned about latency and overall performance. I really want to be able to run at least 32 tracks with plugins without a hitch. I was wondering if you guys think this machine will be able to handle it. Also if you see any redflags that I should be worried about please let me know. I really appreciate your help!
