Default Survey on UAD and Computer gear used

I would like to to encourage anybody out there using UAD plugins
to deposit here only successful computer builds that have left you
able to use UAD PCIE hardware without undue stress.
I am talking plug and play.
Graphic cards, PCIE slots and Motherboards etc
I am thinking that having this knowledge might be great not only for
Consumers but the firm as well.

Mac Pro (Mid 2010)
3.33GHz 6 core Intel Xeon
24 GB 1333MHz DDR3
ATI Radeon HD 5870 1024MB
UAD 2 Octo
Focusrite Dante PCIe

Reaper settings: 96kHz/24bit 128/128ch 128 samples buffer 1.8/1.8ms latency.
The UAD control panel reports 128 samples buffer (1.33ms at 96kHz).

Works like a charm.

Default Sweetwater Creation Station CS-250 (2011 version)

Sweetwater CS-250 (2011 version)

- Intel Core i5-2400 @ 3.1Ghz (4 cores)

- 16 Gig RAM
*(upgraded from 4gig OEM)

- 64 bit Windows 7 Home Premium

- ASUS HD 5450 PCIe Silent GPU 1G(DDR)
*(added aftermarket - OEM is onboard 256M (which is currently
disabled))

- Dual video monitors - extended desktop mode

- HDD 1-C:/) Seagate Barracuda 7200rpm 1TB (for OS, Programs, Sample
Libraries, IR's, etc)
- HDD 2-D:/) Seagate Barracuda 7200rpm 4TB (for projects)
* Upgraded from 500G and 1T respectively - moved the 1T into the C:/ drive and replaced the 1T D:/ with 4T as the D:/ drive)

- Roland Octa-Capture USB audio interface

- UAD-2 Solo
* CS-250 is a slimline case, so can only fit a UAD Solo 1/2 height card)

Notes:

* UAD-2 card was installed in mid 2012 when only had 8gig RAM and still
using onboard GPU with dual monitors

* Buffer is usually 128 or 256, once in a while 64 if tracking with time critical live monitoring

* Usually track audio at 44.1k/24b and switch to 48k/24b if working on
video, rarely at 96k and never at 192k

* No overall issues with operation of UAD-2, either audibly or
visually(GUI), occasional hiccups here and there but nothing nasty or
repeatable



Just wish I'd bought the CS-450 instead, so I could install full height PCIe cards for more DSP (UAD Dual, Quad, Octo) and a more robust GPU for doing videos ... oh well ...
