New rig?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I do music on my pc, recording music, creating mussic, using A LOT of heavy programs at once, need to be able to do that. And also playing games without any fps probs. I need good amount of RAM to run multiple heavy programs at once basically, and good graphics card for smooth latency on the music and games. Price range is $550. I use Cubase, FL Studio, DFO, Firefox, Yahoo Messenger, T-Racks, LOTS of VST Plugins, and some more things. need a big harddrive too, at LEAST 500GB. i have a x-fi music sound card to use.

You will get more for your money if you can build the pc yourself

Based on what you want to do with your rig i suggest the following

I7 2600k cpu
Asus p8p67 motherboard or the pro/deluxe version if you want/need the extra features
8gb G-Skill ripjaws x memory 1.5v 1600mhz
ati hd 6950 graphics card
samsung spinpoint f3 1tb hdd drive
550w-750w psu, wattage depends on if you plan to do much overclocking if not get the 550w if so you will need more power so 650w-750w

That would be a great comp Chewy, except it's about $400 over his budget.
