Build advice

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hi guys,

I need your professional help building a PC.
Most of my work is around sound editing, I need a pc with great sound and very fast capabilities (Editing, exporting, multiple programs etc...)

What should I get (hopefully under $900)?
Thanks

How about this guys?

CPU: i5-3570K
Motherboard: Gigabyte G1.Sniper M3 (because it has the creative CA0132 chip)
Memory: G.Skill DDR3 8G
Storage: OCZ 256 SSD
PSU: Seasonic G-SERIES 360W (enough?)

Do you plan on running any GPUs?
Biostar boards tend to have better onboard sound than others.
G1 Sniper is basically for multi-GPU configs.

Maybe you should ask around in the Audio Section. Those guy's drop words I've never even heard of. Crazy audiophiles.

How about this?

CPU: i5-3570K (using the HD4000)
Motherboard: ASRock H77M (good enough?)
Sound: Xonar Essence STX
Memory: G.Skill DDR3 F3 12800CL8D 8GB
Storage: Crucial M4 256GB
PSU: whatever 400w (enough?)

What do you guys think?
Thanks

If you're going to buy a discrete GPU later, 400W may not be enough. 450-550W is recommended.

400W might work but I wouldn't recommend it.
