When Hardware Just Hates Me

So before buying the new motherboard and OS, I figured I should check and make sure that my recording software, Cubase and Wavelab, would run properly on a 64-bit version of Windows 7. And they're documented to do so.

If only I had thought to check on the status of drivers for my elderly RME Digi9652 card. It turns out that there are no Windows 7 64-bit drivers for this card.

So I either need to get a different OS or I need to get a new ADAT interface. I'm thinking the new interface is the better idea.

Just not a cheap idea.
