In any case, this allows easier upgrading to 16 GB. :)

Nowadays, not using an SSD tends to be the bottleneck.
(But this is probably not the case for streaming audio.)

The PCIe/PCI bridges built into chipsets are reliable, but motherboards
that have a separate chip for this tend to use cheap crap.

Your ASM1083 is infamous. Revision 1 was unusably buggy; rev. 3 mostly
works (except for virtualization). Which one do you have (lspci)?

"Nice" isn't enough, it should be _correct_ (which was not the case for
my last Asus manual).

Anyway, PCIe devices that support MSI use a completely separate
interrupt line. (USB3 ports, graphics, and built-in audio should be
harmless then.)

You need to check /proc/interrupts to be sure.
