Which g5 works best with UAD-1, cubase sx3 and motu 828 mk2?


I've got an ageing G4 and wants to get a G5 but i've been scared by the number of posts about g5 compatibility problems with the uad-1...also i am planning to get sx3. Oh and i am currently using a Motu 828 MK2.
..I also read some posts about firewire soundcard and g5 issues. Anyone can share his/her light?

From what UA says it would be the DP 1.8Ghz model. The newest one that has standard PCI slots, not the original model that had PCI-X slots. You should get good performance from this model. Also any of the single processor models which also don't have PCI-X slots.
