Upgrading PC questions

Postby TheDude » Fri Sep 04, 2015 7:32 am

Hello all. I am building a new mastering PC and have already purchased the i7-5930K and ASUS X99-A LGA 2011-v3 Intel X99 MB. Does anyone use this combo? Is it going to work? Also, I am having to some buy parts each month as I do not have the funds to do it all at once. Is this going to work with Nebula? Does anyone have any recommendations as to how much RAM I will need? I know Neb is CPU dependent, and I am looking at 32GB currently, but do I need more (or will 16GB work because I utilize faster RAM more economically?)
System: Windows 8.1 Pro x64
MB: GIGABYTE GA-Z68X-UD3H-B3 (rev. 1.3)
CPU: Intel Core i7-2600K@3.4 GHz
RAM: Corsair Vengeance 16GB (2x8GB) DDR3 1600 MHz
GPU: (2) GTX760
HD: (2) Samsung SSD 840 Pro (1 for system, 1 for samples, nebula).

Hi,

You seem to be building a setup similar to mine which works very well with Nebula. You could start of with 16GB of memory then add more when it suits you.


Your graphics card requirements may be different from mine (ASUS GeForce GT 730 2GB silent) if you are into gaming.


Check out my specs in my signature below.
Cubase Pro 8 x64 + jBridge, W10 x64 Dual Boot on 2 SSDs + 3 SSDs for samples & project files, i7 5930K @ 4.2GHz, ASUS X99 Pro, 32GB RAM, RME HDSPe AIO, 2 x UAD2 Solo, Mackie HR624 MK2, 2 x 24" BenQ LED monitors, Nebula 3 Pro & Server x64.

16gb should be very sufficient for mastering purposes.
if you are going to work with big samples libraries (eg kontakt) then it might make sense to get more ram.
