I'm in the process of upgrading my pc and I need to decide between
Intel H55TC Motherboard & Intel Core i3 530 Processor Bundle
or the Asus M4N75TD Motherboard & AMD Phenom X4 9850 Quad Core Processor Bundle
for running PT8. I have both digi mini and m-audio 2496 w/ m-powered and wondered which would give the most bang for the buck and most importantly the least amount of headaches and trouble.
thanks

i would go with an Athlon II x4 and a gigabyte mobo

the original phenoms are a pain and the intel would be too expensive for an i3

Hmm. I'm not versed in that program at all. But I think you might just want to look at an inexpensive build with an Athlon IIx2 or x3.
