I've been looking at upgrades for my set up. I do a lot of audio production work and need a build that will handle lots of data through-put.
As much as i'd love to stick with AMD the i7 rigs are just out performing the AMD set ups.
I looked at a machine by Scan
and it out performs an octo-core rig, 2 X Quad Core Xeon X5355 CPU's, for only £1500.
There just isn't a AMD equivalent out there and i'm starting to need the power to exploit my DAW's.
Audio Production and that Scan computer has no sound card
Bad choice of link.
In my opinion, for £1,500, you could do a lot better.
Getting an i7 rig is tempting though. I do a lot of work that requires a very powerful CPU, but I only upgraded 2 years ago, and its not worth the hassle.
I would personally replace the motherboard and hopefully things will improve.
