I'm doing some research on building a new hack geared up for running logic pro x.

What would be great is any input on the crucial components.

From what I can see, it looks like I need more processing power and RAM. I'm considering XEON vs i7.

I think the main benefit of the xeon is extended RAM capacity. But to get to the bottom of what is really needed to boost performance I've attached some screenshots of activity monitor.

In these pics I'm running a fairly small project - restrained by the computer's performance capabilities. Spec is asus p6t se; i7 2.8 ghz 930; 12gb ram, geforce 9500gt 1gb, HDs: 1tb 7200, 300gb 10,000, 128gb ssd, 750gb 7200 with system on. ML 10.8.4 (DSDT everything working sweetly)

All suggestions appreciated.

So far my research is pointing me to:

Asus Z9 PE-D8 WS
GA-X79s-UP5-WIFI

XEON E5-2609
XEON E5-2620
i7 4820K
i7 3930K
