Mixing at 44.1, Mixdown at 88.2

Hello everybody!

A long discussion has been going on here regarding samplerates, and basically I wanted to try a higher rate (88.2) for the mixdown, so the PlugIns I use work at this higher rate.
Problem is: I can't mix the whole time at this high Rate, because my CPU overloads in a busy Mix.
Is it possible to work at 44.1 (or 48) and put the higher Samplerate in charge when it comes to the mixdown? I mean, yeah, tecnically it works, but can I trust the result to be what I heard while mixing, just "better" (probably)?

Thanks in advance for any idea on this,

Fishmac

You can buy a new Dell 2 Quad computer from Dell for $1,000. Best thing you will ever do to be able to use all the plug ins you want. I know it's not the answer you were looking for, but it's the best answer.

Thanks for your reply!

..but...weird thing is... i have a quadcore (q6600), and still...
I'm using a Delta PCI Card and the CPU-Usage doubles with the Sample-Rate (guess that's pretty normal).
Maybe I should try to mix with less PlugIns...

I went this route, never looked back. can record at 88.2 / 24 all day long and not have to worry about cpu. my computer was $350 though. Hint: check out the refurbs on the dell site
