Tascam FW-1884, Win7 64bit & Cubase 7 problems.

Tascam FW-1884, Win7 64bit & Cubase 7 problems.

Hi everyone. I really need help here. I've been looking for a solution for a few days now but I can't find a definitive answer myself.
The short description of it is that I updated my computer, my OS and my software and now my FW-1884 loses sync and creates pops, even after dropping the Latency to 512 and the Sample Rate to 44.1KHz.
On my old system I recorded everything at 128 Latency, 96.0KHz without any problems, even though the computer was a dinosaur compared to my new system here.
From what I've found, it may be a Firewire hardware/software issue (and yes I am using the legacy drivers) so the next thing I'm going to try is a different Firewire card and hope for the best.
Here's some of the specs of my new system:
- Windows 7 Pro 64bit
- AMD FX 8150 8-core 3.60 GHz
- 8 gigs DDR3 RAM 1333MHz
- FW-1884 using 1.80 drivers
My old system was a dual core P4 2.4GHz under XP Pro SP2 with 4gigs DDR2 RAM 400MHz, so my way of thinking is that my new system should be able to kick-butt, but it seems like my ASIO driver is getting overworked somehow.
Any ideas would really be appreciated. I really like my Tascam FW-1884, but maybe it doesn't play nice with something I have here, or I'm missing a vital step or something.
Thanks in advance.
