I am currently running 2 instances of XP. One is my everyday stuff that I need for work and school, and the other is my DAW config. Just recently my Asus p5n32e blew and I had to send it back to Newegg. I was just informed that they no longer have that product in stock and have discontinued selling it so I will be offered an equivalent model or refund. So with that said, I am looking at getting a new motherboard. In terms of recording what does everyone out there have in their custom rigs? For those that know about chipset differences, what has worked, what hasn't? Should I stick with an NVIDIA chipset, or switch to an Intel? If I stick with NVIDIA, should I go 680 or 780? Thanks for your input!
