I don't game, nor do I ever plan to. I just want to be able to handle pro audio software. My several year old "thin and light" type lappy often chokes at the sight of a few reverb or delay plugins.

 

I don't think I know anyone who would have an old case or PSU lying around, but I'll see if I can ask. Otherwise I'm still looking around for cases too at the moment.

 

Here's the stuff I found so far that seems about right (assuming I didn't make any big mistakes with incompatible stuff) and within price range:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157303 (mobo)

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819115077 (cpu)

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231314 (ram)

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822148697 (hdd)

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16827135204 (dvd burner)

 

That's only $300 so far. If I can manage a case and psu for cheap, I'll probably add another or larger HDD. Or how big a deal is SSD really?

 

EDIT: Haven't read you're other post(s) yet. Looking now.

Great job on the mobo, I only saw some $66 one but the one you found is much better.

The Ivy Birdge i3 3220 is only $10 more and has better performance and graphics. Not that much but why not buy a new one?

 

That ram is the one I found

3TB with good feedback is for the SAME price as that one right now.Feedback matters for HDD's and SDD's

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822148844

 

This raises the price by $20 but you get much more

 

An SDD will raise performance BY A LOT. They are only $59 for 60GB's which is enough for Windows and some programs

 

If you can get a case with a PSU in it used, you are set. Some motherboards require a 24 pin connector though which is a problem maybe. Most old Dell PSU's however SHOULD come with 24 pins but look to make sure. The mobo you found is 24 pin. Some mobo's will tell you if you can just use 20 pin and it will still run, this changes from board to board.

 

If you can ask your school and find a case(not too small, the small ones use different board formats) and a working PSU inside, you can just use that.

 

With that, you will have a banging computer for $400 considering you already have a monitor and everything.

I'll take a look at the 3220. Building a new list now...

 

I've never done this before. It's kind of fun actually, haha.

I haven't been watching this, but it looks interesting actually. I'll probably start after finals are over in a little over a week.

Thanks, it iwll be out of stock soon just so you know....just saying. every other 3TB is $150+

 

It is about 5-10% faster, but more efficent with better graphics, however it is only $10 and will give your PC a bigger sensation of being new if you read its specs and may have a higher resale value if you wish to sell it later.

 

Go ask your univeristy or friends and what not. You can usually fine a used pc with mid case and blah blah. 350W should be enough as you are literally running nothing.

 

If the case is too small or weird, look elsewhere, Dell and HP uses BTX or ITX formats sometimes so just a regular free case.

I personally find it a bit difficult to watch, since it's a really heavy watch. But it's definitely worth watching.

Dunno. I've been thinking about just going for Core i3. It should still be within my budget, and I want to get the best possible, even if something a little cheaper might be "good enough." Google results seem to indicate that it's generally better than some comparable stuff from AMD (correct me if I'm wrong), and the price difference from what I can tell so far is pretty negligible. RAM seems to be quite cheap so I'm not too worried about that. A 1TB Barracuda is like $80.

I'm not sure just what kind of power supply I'd need? I saw a Corsair CX430 for $17 after rebate?

I think the thing I understand the least is how to pick a good motherboard.

I think you're okay with the others getting the hardware for you. 100 plugins? That might kill most computers by its own. I record stuff myself. I have Cakewalk Sonar. But I minimize the plugins I use.

Yeah, there have been other ones I've read that were heavy....very heavy

 

I recommend Bitter Virgin

Now I remember, it was that one.

I don't know how intensive 100 plugsis in for that is but the i3 3220 has four threads and 2 physical cores

8GB's of memory with a SSD and 3TB of 7200rpm storage should also do it justice

Good show. The manga is harder hitting, but the tenor and emotional tone of the anime works well with the subject matter.

Maybe not actually 100, or maybe actually 100. Imagine 2-4 sets of multitrack drums. That's as much as 32 tracks for drums alone. Each with anywhere from 3-5 plugins each. I could makes buses for snare top, snare bottom, high tom, etc, but I have limited buses I can use and I need them for other things. Distorted guitar, clean guitar, bass guitar, various and multiple effects channels (reverb, delay, saturation, lots of other random stuff), separate singing and screaming channels for 2 different vocalists, piano, violin, cello, bass, kalimba, mandolin, various choir pads, pan flute, harp, dulcimer, special effects and sound clips...our music can be kind of ridiculous sometimes, haha.

Bowei, I was looking for you this afternoon. I want my parents to finally calm down and not worry about anything bad happening with my current planned build. Here's the list.

Oh, and the Biostar board when purchased on Newegg comes with a free set of RAM.
