I'm asking also.

What should I buy? Budget is currently set to roughly 1500 € but can stretch.

Have a look at these. They may even build one for you to slightly different specs if requested.

Yeah those scan 3XS systems look promising, though I'm not too sure about having them send it internationally. Lots of things that can go wrong there, so maybe it's a better idea to buy the listed components (if you're not in the UK).

Also came across this article http://www.scanproaudio.info/2017/03/02 ... for-audio/ which has some info on DAWBench results for a couple of recent processors, though I think DAWBench in itself does not test very realistic scenarios. Still, if that test is anything to go by AMD is a definite no go.

It seems to be really hard to dig up more info on the real time performance issue and which hardware combinations to avoid, found some things on gearslutz but it's scattered, and somehow I really can;t stand reading that site for more than 5 minutes...

The best solution would probably be a scan system, anyone here who has experience with them?

Something interesting I came across when looking into dynamic frequency scaling (don't ask how I got to that point:v) http://isboxer.com/wiki/HOWTO:Disable_C ... in_Windows
Not mentioned here, but also make sure 'system cooling policy' is set to active, otherwise windows will first slow down your processor before activating the fan.

Honestly I wouldn't overthink much, you'll mostly likely end up buying a processor that's OP for what you do anyway.
