Ok change in question then what I had here before, What I mainly need a high end processor for is for all the VST Instruments, plugins, and tracks I use. I want to be able to run allot at once and still maintain a good amount of CPU ussage. I cant upgrade to a x64 os indefinatly (from my research) because my hardware doesn't all have a 64bit driver. So I want to stick with my 32bit os till they do. Question is, What exactly will be used and wasted during my wait time with this 64bit processor? Even though I wont be able to use it fully, will I still be able to accomplish somewhat (if not all) the above? (Lots of VST instruments, plugins, and tracks). Just to note, some of the VST instruments I use are: *Quantum Leap Symphonic Orchestra -RA -Choirs *Spectrasonics Stylus -Triolgy and more Plugins are self explanatory, especially the WAVEs reverb plugins.
