Also I am hesitant to buy a card that utilizes fan cooling as this would implement more noise to my recording environment.

Any thoughts?
I got a mac pro 2 months ago I had a Nvidia Cuadro 4000 2gb (or 4?) installed just because it was cheap and possible. I sensed issues and got it replaced with a standard ATI 1gb (the one that would come with that macpro). It worked faster and better for audio. What i think i learned is: some graphic card are POWERFUL (rendering, calculating), other are FAST (gaming, real-time work) and fast is better when you deal with AUDIO.

ALSO the nvidia cuadro 4000 was very noisy. mentioned online by some and confirmed by me! ;)

There are so many different CPU choices, it seems like Steinberg could fairly easily come out with recommendations. Perhaps that an i7 with high clock speed is performing better than a 10 core xeon at lower clock speed etc (just as an example)
what I think I learned is FAST is more important than POWERFUL.

so fast cpu speed instead of, for example, higher number of cores, or power of them. I mean.. find the fastest between the most powerful with more cores. something like that ;)

I don't agree with this - I think a lot of problems are caused by manufacturers prioritising battery life over realtime audio performance; fine if all you are doing is wondering around surfing the net but not so good for us musicians. Sometimes they can be tweaked to run well, but sometimes not, depending on which power saving options can be turned off in the BIOS.

I do agree that bloatware doesn't help though.

On my opinion manufacturers especially Apple are targeting a complete other clientele than musicians these days. If you compare the new Mac Pro with old ones you will see that you hardly can exchange parts and you are having a hard time installing pcie cards, internal hard drives etc. Nowadays for a PT HDX system you will need Thunderbolt expansion chassis to get things running. On the old Mac Pro's you simply can built them in without the need of that.

Unfortunately, some manufacturers are following Apple's lead. Look at Apoggee who has gone all in with the Mac/Thunderbolt platform.

I don't have any issues right now (knocking on wood) but the information in this video was very timely for me as I am a hankerin for a new PC in the near future.

Thanks
