DAW

Hi,

I'm planning a completely new DAW for film-scoring and producing with Cubase/Nuendo and Reason.
Now I've got some questions:

1. 32 or 64 bit?
2. XP or 7?
3. 4 or 8 GB RAM?
4. 775 or 1155/1156 CPU Socket? (Intel)
5. Which mainboard / CPU?

Can you suggest me some configurations?

My situation:

My soundcard (Focusrite Saffire Pro 40) only supports TI and some few VIA FW-Chipsets.
If a mainboard has onboard FW should I use this or should I use an extra PCI-Card?

My budget is about 600€.

I hope I didn't forgot something...

Thanks in advance Fabian

This is the standard for this type of work.

Windows 7 64 bit
Cubase/Nuendo 64 bit
Intel i7 2600k @ 4.5GHz
P67a (rev B3) motherboard
24 gigs of ram
SATA-III, TI Firewire, USB-3
Solid State drives for sample streaming.

for 600 you should be able to make a prety nice machine but you would be cutting it close

Wow I think this is a machine to work

Thanks for the concrete description
But I'm ptetty shure that this will blow my budget.
Anyhow... Now I know in which direction I will go

The SSDs and RAM will be upgraded in course of time.
For the beginning I will use 8 gig RAM and HDDs...

That's all?

No more suggestions?

What about the ASUS P8H67 or Gigabyte GA-Z68X-UD3H-B3?
i5 2500k, 8GB RAM?
