Dell XPS 8500 for Music Production

Question

What version OS X would?work best?on my machine? I have the 10.6.3 install DVD from the Apple Store. A second SSD for OS X is also on my to purchase list for this machine - recommendations? I want to build this box for stability above all other desires. Eventually, I would like to dual-boot this with Win7 64-bit Professional.

?

Here are my Desktop Specs:
- Stock Dell XPS 8500
- 256 GB SSD (boot/OS drive)
- 1.8 TB HD (C: drive)
- Intel Core i7-3770 CPU @ 3.4GHz
- 12 GB Ram
- Win7 64-bit OS w/SP-1(Professional)

?

Thanks

Thanks for the direction!

I've used the search and can't seem to find anyone that has attempted this model to build upon. Anyone been down this path??

?

Still looking into the SSD for the boot/applications drive.?It looks like that 64GB is large enough, is there any advantage to getting?128GB?

?
