So here's what I'm looking at for my new daw. I haven't ordered any of the parts yet, just putting it together on paper. Hopi... I'm taking a lot of your suggestions (thanks) and I would appreciate any other suggestions from the forum as well!

Case = Obsidian Series® 900D Super Tower Case

CPU = Intel Core i7-4930K Ivy Bridge-E 3.4GHz LGA 2011 130W 6-Core

Mobo = Asus Sabertooth X79

Cooler = Corsair H100i

PSU = Either the Corsair RM Series 850 Watt ATX/EPS 80PLUS Gold-Certified Power Supply or the Corsair 1200 ax modular.

Memory = 64 gb Corsair Vengance

Video = NVIDIA - GeForce GTX 660 Ti 2GB GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 Graphics Card or perhaps the new EVGA GTX 750 Ti.

OS = Win 7 64

Interface = Focusrite Liquid Saffire 56 (I've had this unit for a few years now).

As far as HD are concerned, I'll probably have 4 - 3T drives. 1 for the OS, 1 for recording, 2 for samples and archiving. I might bump up to 4TB drives since it's like $20 a TB now.

Any thoughts?
