If you wanted to go the AMD route, ASUS are still making some
motherboards with 2 or more PCI slots. I'm still using Athlon64x2
CPUs on Asus M3A78-PRO boards (with ECC RAM) in my DAWs, but last
time I checked there were still current boards with 3 PCI slots.
Boards with 2xPCI are still fairly common.
In general I prefer ECC memory, high efficiency CPUs and low-power
graphics hardware for audio work. Keeping the power consumption down
allows fan noise to be minimised. My location DAW can run fanless.
I also prefer to run efficient software to keep CPU load (and heat)
Thanks for writing such efficient software BTW :-)
