I am planning on buying a dragon ultra platinum (kt333) to build a computer that will mainly be used for audio recording. I will probably end up putting a protools system on it.

does this sound like a good mobo for what i want to use it for? Does this have too many bells and whistles for overclocking for me to use as my first build??

Any help would rock.
Thanks

I would say for the extra $20 or so get the kt400 board. Better bios and it will support the newer 333 t-breds coming out soon. Hopefully;)

I would get the kt400 board except for two reasons....

1.) I have heard alot of reports of many unfixed bugs in the kt400 chipset.
2.) Protools does not currently support the chipset.

they do have a firewire option as well though... is there an option or soyo card close to the platinum ultra specs that has a firewire port installed??
