I'm preparing to build my first PC. I know next to nothing about computers and I'm overwhelmed at the options. I'm wondering if someone can help me narrow my choices in time for Black jFriday. My maximum budget is $2,000, and I'm building it for music composition and production.
This is some advice I got from a discord group I'm a part of:
I hope someone can help me out! Thanks!
take a look at this one. For cooler I'm not sure what aio this case can take, while I don't see the dual tower air cooler selection in the custom builder, but you need to choose one of these two instead of the low profile coolers showing in the selection. For nvme drive this b550-f can take on one pcie 4.0 and one pcie 3.0, which should be pretty enough.
Ryzen or intel? 12th gen intel cpu just came out, while both intel cpu, z690 motherboards and ddr5 memories kicking a high price it makes sense to go with ryzen. Is nvme pcie4.0 drive a must? From what i see it makes little difference when the read/write speed gets to the 3000 mb threshold.
The speed of processing is important because working with large orchestral compositions and many simultaneous instrument samples is highly cpu intensive. Also I need 32 gb RAM.
