I'm thinking about building myself a new DAW. I haven't decided anything yet, but I'm thinking about buying the Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 2.4GHz 8MB L2 cache cpu. Does anyone have any experience with this cpu in a DAW? But my biggest dilemma is not which cpu to choose, but which combination of cpu/motherboard I should choose. I'm not planning on buying a new sound-interafce, and therefore I'll need to connect my M-Audio Firewire 1814 to it. I do a lot live- recording and use my laptop with this interface, so the DAW workstation is primarily for post-production, in addition to some Csound/MaxMSP programming. Does anyone have any tip/hints?
