I'm a music and film editor, looking to build my own PC, primarily for music production using Ableton 10 Suite as well as some guitar amp simulators. I've included my entire build thus far. I'm very new to building PCs, so I'm not sure if there are certain components that would be better suitable for the programs that I am using. Perhaps a different video card or CPU? I'm definitely going to be saving a lot of big files/projects on this computer. Not so much gaming. Any suggestions are welcome.
So far, my build includes the following:
CPU: AMD - Ryzen 5 5600X Vermeer 3.7GHz 6-Core AM4 Boxed Processor
Motherboard: ASUS - B550-F ROG Strix Gaming AMD AM4 ATX
RAM: Ripjaws V 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR4-3200 PC4-25600 CL16 Dual Channel Desktop Memory Kit F4-3200C16D-16GVKB
Case: Lian Li - Lancool II MESH Type C RGB Tempered Glass ATX Mid-Tower Computer Case - Snow White
Power Supply: EVGA - 650BQ 650 Watt 80 Plus Bronze ATX Semi-Modular Power Supply
Video Card: MSI - NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 Super Ventus XS Overclocked Dual-Fan 6GB GDDR6 PCIe 3.0 Graphics Card
SSD: Samsung - 870 EVO 1TB SSD 3-bit MLC V-NAND SATA III 6Gb/s 2.5" Internal Solid State Drive + Samsung - 970 EVO Plus SSD 1TB M.2 NVMe Interface PCIe 3.0 x4 Internal Solid State Drive with V-NAND 3 bit MLC Technology (MZ-V7S1T0B/AM)
Optical Drive: LG - GH24NSC0B 24x Internal DVD Rewritable SATA Drive
Thermal Compound: Arctic Silver - 5 High-Density Polysynthetic Silver Thermal Compound 3.5g
Keyboard: Logitech - MK320 Series Wireless Desktop Keyboard and Mouse
Thanks for looking!
in my opinion i would change the power supply to 850 watt and buy the 980 pro samsug ssd, you might want to get a better system board ,
ideally a z690. think about this alot , your also going to do lots of music, and maybe video so think to the future 4 years that you are going to use this system. you might even consider a NAS ,( network attached storage ).
also look in the pro music magazines for multi channel audio input cards.
i have a gtx 1660 , they work good and also gert 32 gb ram
