So my old PC is old (QX9650 and a GTX 560 ti 448 core) but it’s served its purpose and apart from some gaming, I also code, but my main use is as a composer. I value sober looks and as quiet as possible.
I’ve come into some money and can treat myself to a new PC, here is what I am going for:
Fractal define R6 (no TG!)
Asrock Z370 extreme 4
16 GB corsair vengeance LPX (3000 mhz)
INNO3D GeForce GTX 1080 Ti Twin X2
Samsung 960 EVO 500 GB
2x Iron wolf 6TB mechanical drives
I don’t need a power supply as I have a spare RM750x a friend gave me.
I don’t need a monitor as I have a pair of Dell ultrasharp U2711’s (Yeah the 10 bit ones - I got em cheap from my workplace, €300 the pair)
Obviously, I also have an external E-MU outboard soundcard connected to a pair of balanced studio monitors (KRK rokit GII 5’s)
I’m kind of stuck on whether to shell out the extra for the 1 TB 960 EVO
I’m also tempted to fill the small m.2 wifi slot with a card like a INTEL® DUAL BAND WIRELESS-AC 7265. I’m on wired net, but we have 2 modem/routers in my house and if mine fails, I have a 50 ft ethernet cable I can use to connect to the one downstairs - i’d prefer wifi.
