After all my attempts to get the 5000A working correctly on my Vista machine failed, I decided to build a second computer just for radio control (Flex, Winradio 303i, TenTec RX-321 and hopefully soon, a Perseus).  I didn't want to give up Vista because I find it easier to do things with it and I like the "eyecandy". I used a Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3L MB, Intel E6550 2.3 Mhz C2D, 2 GB of 1066 Mhz RAM, 160 GB HDD, Koutech PCIe 1394 card and a EVGA 8600GT 256 MB video card to run XP Pro. I limited the installed software to radio control programs, Adobe Acrobat Reader and AVG free antivirus. I'm using a Belkin Flip KVM switch so I can share the keyboard, trackball and monitor between the two computers.  It's working great at 192 kHz/2048 with the exception that pressing the scroll wheel changes the size of the PowerSDR screen rather than stepping through the tuning step sizes.  I do have the box checked in Setup.  I suspect it may be a problem with the Flip. The MB is nice because it has serial and parallel ports for legacy devices and is relatively cheap.  It does lack RAID, but I didn't think I needed it.

One happy camper,


Alan Johnson
