Damn. Upgrading yet again. Windows 7 64bit to?

So here we are again. I had to upgrade my GPU to use a 34" widescreen now after trying everything known to man the conclusion is my Motherboard is bottle necking the card. Its a Sabertooth x58. Anyways now I have to upgrade my Motherboard and might as well go with the best CPU. Im running Windows 7 64 bit with Protools 11 HD Native.

Im being told that I will have to go with at least Windows 8 but I really do not want to go through compatibility bull crap with all my plugins,protools, ect ect ect.

What is the best Motherboard and Processor being successfully used out there with Protools 11 HD and what operating system is the current go to for stability and compatibility?

FYI. Im not going to Protools 12 HD because they have issues with Midi latency plus I have a un upgradable version of HD due to this is how I purchased it used.

Whats the video card?
Is this a 4k monitor?
Is it just the one video monitor?
What other PCI/PCI-e card s do you have in the system?

Technically PT 11 will run fine on both Windows 8 64 bit and 10 64 bit. Just not officially.

Your audio and midi interface and some 3rd party plugins may be the main stumbling block for moving to a different OS.
